Mitt Romney VP Pick Imminent

Posted: Updated:

Mitt Romney is expected to name his choice for his vice presidential running mate on Saturday morning in Norfolk, Virginia.

The Republican hopeful will make the announcement at the Nauticus Museum at 8:45 a.m. ET.

According to a statement from the former Massachusetts governor's campaign, Romney will also be launching a four-day bus tour through swing states.

The AP reports:

The short list of candidates – if there is one – is believed to include Ohio Rep. Rob Portman, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan.

...

Speculation has focused in recent days on Ryan, the seven-term congressman. Conservative pundits have been urging Romney to choose Ryan in large part because of his authorship of a House-backed budget plan that seeks to curb overall entitlement spending and changes Medicaid into a voucher-like system to save costs.

UPDATE: Romney will announce Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate on Saturday morning in Virginia. Click here for more details.
