Is McDonnell Being Vetted by Romney Campaign?
Virginia governor tells WTOP's Mark Segraves "apparently there's some vetting going on."
On Tuesday morning's "Ask the Governor" program on radio station WTOP, the governor told host Mark Segraves that "apparently there's some vetting going on," by the Romney campaign.
Instead of denying that he is being vetted, as he has done in the past, McDonnell said Tuesday it would be best to ask the Romney campaign. McDonnell attended a Park City, Utah retreat with Romney and other GOP leaders and donors over the weekend. Some pundits surmised Romney was sizing up potential VP choices.
McDonnell is set to attend a luncheon for Romney today in D.C. Romney is scheduled to make an appearance in Northern Virgina on Wednesday, at EIT, LLC in Sterling.
The most-often discussed potential VP choice is U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, 41. President Obama holds a slight lead over Romney in Florida, most recent polls show.
Five polls in Virginia taken within the past month show Obama leading in Virginia; one of the polls, by WeAskAmerica, shows Romney leading.
