It’s Official: Romney Begins Veep Vetting Process

A little more than three months before the 2012 Republican National Convention, the Romney campaign is already reaching out to potential Veep candidates.

The team for Beth Myers, the Romney adviser leading the search for the GOP’s vice presidential nominee, has already contacted potential running mates, according to a source close to the Romney campaign.

By beginning the process early, the Romney camp hopes to avoid the mistake of John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, when that campaign found itself unprepared for the onslaught of public attention that greeted Sarah Palin.

But, when asked directly by The Hill, three of the top candidates on the shortlist — Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) — declined to comment on the process.

“I’m not going to talk about the process,” said Rubio. “When they make a choice, I’m sure it’s going to be a great choice.”

Portman said, “I respect him and his process and I’m not going to talk about it.” Ryan said, “I’m not getting into it.”
