After campaigning together over the weekend, Mitt Romney and his new running mate Paul Ryan head out on separate campaign paths today. Romney is headed to Florida and Ohio, while Ryan is scheduled to travel to Iowa, as the ticket looks to cover as much ground as possible.

Romney began the weekend by introducing the Wisconsin congressman as his running mate at an event in Virginia. They campaigned yesterday in North Carolina as part of a multistate bus tour, before ending the day in Ryan's home state.

Romney is making it clear that he would be guided as president by his own budget plan -- and not the more detailed and more austere proposal from his running mate. But top Obama aides spent yesterday branding Ryan's budget the "Ryan-Romney plan."
