(CNN) – Mitt Romney will be joined by a trio of potential vice presidential picks on his upcoming bus tour through four battleground states, sources confirmed to CNN Monday.
The presumptive GOP nominee will stump with Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Ohio Sen. Rob Portman on his tour, which begins Saturday.

CNN's Peter Hamby first reported Romney's bus tour last week, noting that he would be joined by GOP heavyweights on his stops.
The Republican candidate's campaign announced Monday they were dubbing the trip through Virginia, North Carolina, Florida and Ohio "The Romney Plan For A Stronger Middle Class."
McDonnell, Rubio and Portman have all been the subject of media guesswork as potential running mates for Romney, though each has declined to speculate themselves on becoming the vice presidential candidate.
CNN's Steve Brusk contributed to this report.

I think Romney campaign...will chose Ann Romney as Vice-President...so they both don't have to reveal tax return....and it matches to what they looking for a woman as the VP candidate.
Too bad he's not taking Paul Ryan along. Would love to see how the older voters react to the man out to dismantle social security and medicare.
The presumptive GOP nominee will stump with" Former " Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell.
Former as in not employed , looking for job.
Correction/clarification: "Trying out potential VPs = finding someone who (hopefully) will replace flip-floppy, lying, no-core Mormon Mittens when he dies in office."
I think this is the GOP strategy, not something I personally wish for.
I wonder what these repubs going to do to compete with china and all these third world countries, when mitten cut our spending money and give business incentives to go over seas. let me see, big businesses choice is :go to theses third world countries and pay those folks 5 dollars an hour, or stay in America and pay us 25 dollar an hour. I wonder which country the shareholders will chose. lesson folks doesn't go into business for patriotism, they goes to make money for themselve and their investers, this means getting it at any cost, and to popular saying by the rich and repubs that they are concerned about us, thats a bunch of hog wash.
Dont go with the game changer. Go with one of the boring white guys.
These guys don't want to go down in flames with Mitt the twit.
Where are those taxes?
Romney you have yet to answer to a lot of conflicting claims and issues concerning your professional life as a business man and politician that are very disconcerting. And it behoves me to the point that I am compelled to pose the question as to why half of this country and news media seem to turn a blind eye to getting to the bottom of the old bait and switch game. From congress to the so called journalist, no one seem to be doing their jobs. This country is going to the dogs and we the people are being taken for a car ride on the roof tops of lies locked in a cage.
Rommey hood and his band of radiers. Release the tax returns.
