Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney may be close to naming his running mate.
We're getting closer and closer here, and the list of candidates may be narrowing.
Romney was doing a little grocery shopping Monday near his home in New Hampshire. It was a photo-op, for sure, but he was preparing for a big meeting that included the director of his vice presidential search effort.
And many conservatives think the announcement is right around the corner.
A lot of the speculation centers around possible candidates that include three members of Congress, Sen. Rob Portman, of Ohio, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, and Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan.
And then there are three current or former governors, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Virginia's Bob McDonnell and Minnesota's Tim Pawlenty.
There's still talk about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, too, but he may have to settle for a prime speaking role at the convention.
There are others, though, and some are looking at this week's big Romney bus tour for clues. The itinerary includes stops in key swing states, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida and Ohio.
The Obama campaign, in the meantime, is preparing for at least one possibility, telling supporters in Ohio to begin campaigning against Portman.
