Romney's search for a VP appears to narrowJune 20, 2012
Mitt Romney's search for a running mate appears to have narrowed, as clues to whom Romney might select as his No. 2 begin to pile up in the media.
A campaign that prides itself on discipline had, to date, exacted tight control over the process of vetting candidates to serve at the former Massachusetts governor's No. 2, a fact that Romney bragged on Tuesday.
"I get a kick out of some of the speculation that goes on," Romney told Sean Hannity of Fox News in an interview to air this evening. "I'm not going to comment on the process of course, but I can tell you this: only Beth Myers and I know who is being vetted."
That comment came amid new reports on Tuesday that Marco Rubio, the popular Florida Republican senator, had not been asked - yet, at least - to submit the materials typically associated with vetting a vice presidential candidate.
ABC News initially reported that Rubio wasn't being vetted, and the Washington Post followed up with indications that Rubio hadn't made it past an initial review by Romney's high command.
Romney's quip to Fox served as a knowing acknowledgement, though, of what members of the media have encountered in their search for details on the veepstakes: News is fleeting, largely because the Romney campaign's high command keeps details on lockdown.
