(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.
ROFL.... Does not matter who Romney picks for V.P. The Republicans screwed this election up soo badly we Democrats have Obama and Hillary sealed up as the next two term presidents! Thanks Romney and the rest of the incompetent Republicans!
WHO cares???? He can name The Dick Cheney who has no heart or soul...himself and he STILL cant hold a candle to President Obama......enough said...Boop Boop Dee Doop!!!
Great distraction Willard, now let's see those tax returns, and while you're at it, I think you need to produce your long-form birth certificate as well.
Let me guess. The career businessman Mitt Romney (who is happy not to be a career politician) picks the career politician Paul Ryan.
It will be Gov. McDonnel of VA, good man...I wish them well although I will vote Obama
It's Paul Ryan or Marco Rubio. Regardless of who he picks though, he would stlil lose.
And not that you have any real chance of winning, but if VA Governor Bob McDonnell is your VP choice, then you may as well save your money and call it quits now.
Kolob, look it up. That is what Mitt believes. I'd rather vote for L.Ron Hubbard. It doesn't matter who his running mate is.
It's the angry mean Lady from New Hampshire.
boy I just can't wait. Oh gee, I'm falling asleep again. the GOP is so ho hum.
Let us only hope he has the sense to avoid Paul Ryan. Mr. Ryan might be the most dangerous man in Washington to our seniors. His budget cuts turn medicare into a voucher system and it hurts seniors who have contributed for years. He points to these programs as unaffordable yet he cuts taxes for the top earners and increases spending on defense. The man has a vendetta against the elderly.
Rumors are flying in the media that it will be Paul Ryan. What a dream come true for the Democrats, almost as good as Sarah Palin or Donald Trump. Paul Ryan's budget includes hundreds of billions of dollars in increased defense spending, huge cuts to taxes for the wealthy, deficit reductions, and he plans to pay for all of this by cutting Medicare, Medicaid, and food aid to the poor. This completes the GOP team which wants to make corporations and the wealthy even wealthier at the expense of the American middle class and poor. Romney just gave Obama's campaign an armory full of ammunition with which to blast them out of the election.
It will probably be someone offshore.
TV says Romney's pick is Ryan. There is the other face of Romneyhood.
Romney doesn't look right in jeans.
Darn I was going to Disneyland on Saturday now I will miss Mickey Mouse.
Just one thing, Romney, how about revealing your tax returns first.
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!!
If Ryan is the VP pick, Seniors wont vote for someone that wants to cut medicare
I figure to help guarantee his eminate defeat it will be either Fred Willard, Paul Rubens, or David Duke
It appears that CNN is worried about Romney's pick, why is that? By the way, I'm upset about the increased spike of the cost of gas again. Hmmm, fossil fuel; am I right?
I feel an think that Ryan is the better pick for president than Romney we need new an young blood , he may be a republican but I feel JFK would vote for him, romney is old news old ways
I am very happy he picked Ryan. Now the dems have Florida.
Germany newspapers already saying Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is VP running mate. Its Saturday there already...
Tell him to pick the New Jersey guy.At least he'll get the weight -watcher vote.
