Romney VP pick tomorrow: Jindal, Ryan, Rubio, who?

jindal-historicAnd the winner of the Republican Mitt Romney running mate derby 2012 is....

Fill in the blank.  Will it be Rubio, Ryan, Jindal, Pawlenty, Portman?  What about a woman?  Or an outsider politician out from the hinterlands such as Sarah Palin in 2008.

 

 

According to Fox News, the answer to the aborted mystery will be at a national news shoe near you, if you are up at 8:45 ET.

The announcement comes as some polls, including a recent Fox News survey, show the Republican presidential candidate losing some ground to President Obama.

According to Fox  "The selection comes roughly two weeks before the start of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, and gives Romney plenty of space to rally the party behind his pick before the official nomination.

The campaign has not yet confirmed who the running mate is. Speculation has centered lately on Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, but Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, among others, have all been mentioned as possibilities in recent days. The Romney could also decide to surprise everybody with an outside-the-box selection Saturday morning.

CNN reported that "Mitt Romney called several of the Republicans on his vice presidential shortlist on Friday evening to tell them he has selected a running mate and to thank them for assisting with his campaign, a Republican familiar with the calls told CNN.

Romney did not indicate who he selected as his running mate, according to the source.

Mitt Romney will announce his running mate at 8:45 a.m. ET Saturday in Norfolk, Va., Fox News confirms.

Romney will launch his "The Romney Plan For A Stronger Middle Class" bus tour after announcing his choice for vice presidential candidate, according to an official press release from the Romney campaign.
