Urgent: Romney to name Paul Ryan as VP 9:15am Saturday morning
Carl Cameron from Fox News is reporting that Mitt Romney will name his Vice Presidential nominee at 9:15am eastern time in Norfolk on Saturday morning (8/11). Romney will begin a swing state barn storming tour on Saturday and clearly the kickoff will include the new ticket as a complete package beginning in Virginia and moving into the Midwest.
No story yet, just a flash on FoxNews.com:
Carl Cameron is Reporting Tonight That Mitt Romney Will Announce His Running Mate at 9AM ET Saturday in Norfolk, Va.
Cameron speculates that many signs point to Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. National Review is semi-corroborating that with a story about a charter flight from Boston to Janesville, Wisconsin, the hometown of Congressman Ryan. Again, that is purely speculative, there is no concrete information about who the choice will be.
