(CNN) - Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will announce his vice presidential candidate Saturday at an event in Virginia, his campaign said.
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.

I will be your next Vice President. You're welcome.
I've heard first hand that it will be Sharron Angle. You heard it here first!!!
Oh gee... I'm waiting with baited breath.
His tax accountant?
either Eric Cantor or Bob McDonnell
Desperate to change the news cycle and try to get a bump in the polls! Still wanna see those tax returns!
When he stops hiding his tax returns maybe I'll care a little more!! Maybe if he didn't agree with Obama on almost everything maybe I would care a little more!!
Guess he thought now was a good time to make this announcemen,t so he could try and deflect the attention away from the fact that he is hiding his taxes from the American people. It's not going to work Mitt, we want to see your taxes.
I would be more interested in seeing his tax returns.
I'm pretty certain Mitt is zeroing in on a VP who shares his rock-solid non-partisan moderate progressive severely conservative convictions.
But not his taxes for ten or so years????
We don't know who the VP pick is yet, but Rachel Maddow is already developing a commercial proving how he's responsible for the starving kids in Africa.
Is tomorrow April 1st?
It's Paul Ryan. Wow. Dems will butcher him on Medicare/SS. Will hurt in Florida. I guess Rubio is waiting for 2016, when the GOP have a better chance.
Romney is announcing his VP pick early to distract the American people from his sliding poll numbers and his non release of his tax returns. Pathetic!
The Weekly Standard has been working with Paul Ryan. this is going to be disaterous for Romney.
The Ryan Plan will gut Social Secuirty and Medicare. He might as well say he hates old people and the middle class.
Romney is announcing the VP pick in Norfolk, Virginia.
let's hope he picks Sarah Palin...
We don't know who the VP pick is yet, but word is Rachel Maddow and George Soros are already producing a story about how he's responsible for the starving kids in Africa.
America, I announce to you my running mates! Sarah Palin and John McCain Palin!
I have spoke many earthquake from God the spirit that take care of life in earth, I hope you be very careful about talk about family people crossing deserts the and other people thinking and doing many things ...and US talking about "equal"
I'm guessing Bob McDonnell.
