(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.
CNN Political Reporter Peter Hamby contributed to this report.
If Ryan is the pick, seniors and all of America have to wake up.This isn't about trimming the waste.It will be about destroying Medicare,Medicaid,education , and eventually Social Security.They don't believe in Medicare and Social Security, and the excuse will be saving Medicare.Seniors will have to find an extra 6400.00 each a year !
I'm guessing a pet rock! Whoever it is they got to be pretty boring.
omg Paul Ryan is the Sarah Palin of 2012
I think he'll go with Paul Ryan. Young, experienced, very conservative credentials yet not a tea partier. Romney-Ryan, it slips right off the tongue.
I can't wait to vote against them.
Not unreasonable. THe convention is about 2 weeks away
Whoever it is will be a huge improvement over Biden. Just as Romney is a huge improvement over Obama. This election should be a landslide.
It does not matter whom he has selected. He will loose come November anyway.
May be the Kokch brothers or an other wealthy man out of touch with the middle class
Hey making a post that involves three republicans needs moderation
Dick Fuld (Lehman Brothers) or Bernie Maddoff would make excellent choice for Romney. They were both 'great' leaders too. And America got a NICELY WRAPPED PRESENT called a recession because of their GREAT LEADERSHIP EXAMPLE.
Good VP or NOT, please keep Romney away from the White House. He is a DISGRACE! Obama 2012.
Local media here in Wisconsin are reporting that he's going to announce his choice from the USS Wisconsin, a retired battleship now located in Virginia, leading credence to the speculation that his choice will be Congressman Paul Ryan from Wisconsin.
Paul Ryan ... He's making the announcement on the USS Wisconsin and word is there was a plane from the Romney campaign in Janesville, WI this evening, where Ryan lives.
Making it official, Romney picks --
- the Koch Brothers!
Who actually cares lol. Am I right hahaha?!?
Desperate times require desperate actions. Romney has failed to move the electorate. The more voters learn about him the less they like him. His VP pick is not likely to alter the situation.
Romney / Borat 2012 !
KEEP schemers AWAY from leadership positions.............NO MATTER HOW much money they made in their business. Their SKILLS ARE NOT GOOD for the majority............OBAMA 2012
Per NBC he chose Paul Ryan
This should be good...someone is about to be the new American Political Idol.
Paul Ryan is the one, they just announced it
So long it's not Palin, you can't go wrong by a lot.
way to stuff it into the end of the weeks news cycle when no ones paying attention
I would LOVE to know WHY Romney would announce VP on the last weekend of the Olympics AND a Saturday when no one is paying attention!
