But some still have reservations about Romney.
Some Tea Party Activists say they support Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney's choice of Congressman Paul Ryan for his running mate. Romney made his announcement in Norfolk, Va. on Saturday.
Patricia Rucker with We The People, West Virginia, says Ryan, who chairs the House Budget Committee, will uphold conservative values. "Someone whose willing to defend a balanced budget, limiting the government, and getting back to the business that's on hand," she says. "He has proposed many, many budget cuts that have unfortunately been ignored. But we were told he would be behind."
Ryan, whose represented Wisconsin since 1999, has come under fire for proposals to revamp the Medicare program, which provides seniors with health care benefits. The plan would steer older Americans into private insurance plans, with a fixed payment from the government which may nor may not cover as much of a retiree's costs as the current program.
Critics say it will "gut" Medicare. "The goal is not cut Social Security or Medicare, but to fund it. But how can we fund with these trillions of dollars in debt," says Rucker.
Romney has said that Ryan has worked to make sure Medicare can be saved, but has not endorsed Ryan's plan.
Despite Romney's pick of Congressman Ryan, Rucker says some Tea Partiers are not fully sold on Romney as a presidential candidate. "It hard to trust someone with a mixed record like Romney does," she says. "It cannot be any worse than the current administration we have."
Rucker says her Tea Party organization will not be endorsing any candidates this fall, but will conduct voter education drives to get more citizens to turn out to the polls in November.
