Richmond, Virginia (CNN) - Mitt Romney called several of the Republicans on his vice presidential shortlist on Friday evening to tell them he has selected a running mate and to thank them for assisting with his campaign, a Republican familiar with the calls told CNN.
Romney did not indicate who he selected as his running mate, according to the source.
Romney knows he cant win on his own, so he took a risky pick and went with Paul Ryan... Chalk Florida up for Obama!
ENOUGH ALREADY! This is not a story. try reporting when something actually happens and stop feeding the soap opera.
If it's Bobby Jindal, the race will be over for Romney. He doesn't have quality support from the religious right. Some will think it's Santorum.
Sorry to say, Romney won't chose Rubio due to his unfornate deficit in height. Standing next to Romney, he looks like his son or younger brother. Optics is what wins elections.
Wondering... Why would a Presumptive Presidential Candidate, whose 8 year campaign has been built around saving the Utah Olympics, now be ruining the London Games by stealing the headlines on the eve of the Opening Ceremony and doubling up on London2012, by now announcing his running mate hours before the Closing Ceremony?
Is that a friend or foe, of the Olympic ideals?
It's 12:50AM at this time and CNN already announced that it will be Paul Ryan – Let the fun begin!!!
Obama 2012 – The Only Trusted Way Forward!!
Best choice he could have made. This is the only VP candidate who wasn't milk-toast or damaged goods. The GOP will certainly refocus campaign on deficit spending and debt and divert attention from Romney's political record (Romneycare) and business history (Bain).
Ryan's youthful exuberance and simplistic approach to the debt, the debt ceiling, and investment by government will mobilize those who do not wish to think more than one layer deep or those who are emotionally immersed in anti-Obama antipathy. Never underestimate the power of a slogan for a candidate. He will make great theatre debating Biden with reflexively delivered slogans such as "You can't spend your way out of debt." Accountants, economists and investment experts will not understand it but the far more numerous Joe the Plumbers will salivate all over it.

as a man more famous and powerful than I once said "IT IS FINISHED!!"
That's funny, because it's since been reported that Mittens, in further proof that money can't buy class, delegated his son Tagg (a grown man named "Tagg"? What, were Buffy and Chip unavailable?) to call the runnerups. Is there ANYTHING this man doesn't have two versions of????
