Eric Fehrnstrom, speaking to reporters in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, following a fund-raiser, said "No decision's been made on V.P."
His remarks came after a report in the New York Times that cited friends of Romney saying the candidate had made his choice for running mate and was preparing to announce his pick as early as this week.
Fehrnstrom would not speculate on the timing of the announcement.
"It could happen anytime between now and the convention but it will only happen after a decision has been made and no decision has been made," Fehrnstrom told CNN National Political Correspondent Jim Acosta.
Romney was in Louisiana's capital to raise money with the state's governor, Bobby Jindal. Fehrnstrom said Monday the two politicians did not discuss the possibility of Jindal joining the Romney ticket.
"He met with Gov. Jindal but they didn't talk about V.P.," Fehrnstrom said, mentioning that they did discuss education policy.
