Romney To Announce VP Choice Saturday At 9AM
(AP) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will announce his running mate Saturday morning in Norfolk, Va., his campaign said Friday night.
The short list of candidates - if there is one - is believed to include Ohio Rep. Rob Portman, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan. In a statement issued Friday night, the Romney campaign said the running mate would be revealed at 9 a.m. EDT at the Nauticus Museum. Romney is kicking off a four-day bus tour through swing states.
Speculation has focused in recent days on Ryan, the seven-term congressman.
UPDATE: NBC News' Chuck Todd reports that Paul Ryan will in fact be the choice.
