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.
WHO CARES WHO MCAIN WILL PICK PROBABLY A RIGHT WINGER THAT KNOWS HOW to smear and lie the last eight years have been a lie and media didnt hold them responsable I JUST HOPE AND PRAY AMERICAN PEOPLE have learned rhat their scare tactics wont work three times we are smater than that even IF CNN DONT think so
Who cares we will not waste time on the republican convention......I love lucy we be on........
I find it interesting that McCain doesn't draw a bigger crowd. All the people who say they will vote for him and not Obama.
This shows me that America is ready for a changing of the old guard in Washington and looking for something fresh and new.
Bill Clinton reminded us in his speech last night that people said he was too young to lead and didn't have foreign policy experience. He was a govenor and not in the senate.
I'm willing to give Obama a chance. I'm tired of paying over $4.00 for gas and watching my paycheck not last. I'm tired of watching people struggle everyday (except the wealthy).
It's time to take back our country from the people who seek to destroy it.
Please pick Mitt Romney, the two of you make an awesome ticket which is sure to win !!
And, who cares if he havent had the huge crowds that Obama has, we are electing a commander in chief, not a rock star president with no experience or substance. Big crowds are turning everybody off Obama, he should have realised this after Berlin when his ratings dropped.
15000? Good luck on that on, so is he going to listen to Karl Rove and pick Mitt Romney?
It's kind of a let down after all the hoop la and drama of the Dems.
I hope his pick will help to defeat Obama. I am one of the many Hillary supporters who will be voting for McCain. Obama has zero experience. The country is faced will serious problems . This not the time for on the job training. This is a fact that Hillary pointed out during the primaries. Unfortunately, it was not enough to defeat Obama. For this reason, I hope the McCain campaign can come up with a VP choice that can help McCain win.
Choose very wisely, McCain.....this is for all the marbles......
It doesn't matter who McCain picks because it will still be...MORE OF THE SAME!
No way. NO how. No McCain.
I hope the Dems are ready with the attack ad. If it is Romney, he said some very negative things about McCain.
Is the VP a POW too?
I hope its Romney! He knows the most about the economy and can do the most good.
I hope it's somebody bad enough to justify voting for the empty suit.
McCain needs Romney's expert advice on the economy. Romney helps McCain in several battleground states.
If he picks a democratic or moderate VP, he will LOSE the election.
We so hope it is Colin Powell as many of us have E Mailed incessantly to get Powell. He would balance the ticket as he's an intellgent, strong people person who has the military background as well. If Bush would of listened to Powell re Iraq we would be so much better off today. He told Bush "you break Iraq, we own it".
Instead of sending the McCain supporters an E-mail, Senator McCain will be posting a letter tonight announcing his selection.
Who cares- Mittens or pawlenty, or even Meg Whitman. that selection is dead in the water. I don't even intend to watch Warmonger and his cronies next week.
