We have a new tip from a leading contender, Sen. Rob Portman said he will most likely stay in the Senate. That’s either saying he won’t be the running mate, or he’s denying it. He and former Governor Tim Pawlenty are the most frequently mentioned Romney running mates. Many also say Mitt Romney will make his running mate announcement when he goes on his four state bus trip next week. Potential pick Governor Bobby Jindal also recently said that people don’t vote based on the running mate. He also made news recently when he website got a new server, which is common practice for running mates to handle large amounts of traffic.
