DENVER (CNN) – John McCain has decided on his running mate and will officially reveal his pick on Friday in Ohio, multiple sources tell CNN.
A knowledgeable Republican source says there the matter was settled at a major meeting of McCain's advisers Wednesday.
The Arizona senator’s choice has not yet been told of the decision, but the plan is to call tomorrow. A handful of names of dominated VP speculation in recent days, including former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, independent Senator Joe Lieberman, and Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty.
The presumptive Republican nominee will appear with his prospective running mate at a massive rally on August 29, the day after Barack Obama formally accepts the Democratic presidential nomination.
The McCain campaign is hoping to have 15,000 people at the Ohio rally — roughly five times the size of his largest crowd to date.
Great, a grumpy old guy and a gameshow host...
McCain has only had roughly 3,000 people at his largest rally? Are they garnering any support? I wonder if the press corps is a good portion of John McCain's crowd?
Who cares... they're all losers.
McCain more if the Same!!
Maybe it will be a detainee from Guantanamo. After all, according to him, being a POW qualifies you to lead the country.
Oooh, I can't wait...(yawn).. Since he doesn't know about computers, he'll probably send out information on his choice by mail. I do think it's funny that he is trying hard to get some attention. I wonder where he got the idea to mention he's decided and hold on to it. Hate to ruin your "surprise" but everyone knows it's Mitt Romney.
Hey, Chuck. Get over it, dude.
McCain will do whatever Karl Rove tells him to do.
WHO REALLY CARES AT THIS POINT? WE ALREADY GOT OUR NEXT PRESIDENT AND HIS VICE, OBAMA AND BIDEN! THE JOB IS ALREADY TAKEN MCSAME'S APPLICATION HAS BEEN THROWN OUT AND A REPUBLICAN VICE NEED NOT EVEN APPLY!

Grandpa Simpson picks Mr. Burns.:

WHO CARES! Hes going to lose anyway. It dont matter if he picks jesus christ himself! The redumbicans are toast. Obama/Biden 08
Not picking Hillary was a "no brainer" according to Guilliani – Obama betrayed ALL women. McCain will pick someone who shares his values – Obama picks someone who can get him elected. No Obama, no way, no how.
Oh my god! We need people staking out his house, ALL 9 OF THEM!
Are you kidding that CNN is puts republican spin on their political coverage? CNN is the most balanced source out there on cable.
For Dem who want to hide from the truth watch MSNBC. They have anchors who have said on TV that Obama send chills up thier legs. And for the Republicans who want to hide from the truth you have Fox News Channel. They are fair and balance if you are a Republican.
