Team Romney Begins Vetting Possible VP Picks

Team Romney won't likely reach a decision on its vice presidential selection until at least July. The Hill's Alexander Bolton reports:

Mitt Romney’s campaign has begun vetting running mates, a process that will narrow his list of possible veep picks.

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.

A source close to the campaign said prospects had been contacted but declined to say who had been contacted or how wide a net had been cast.
