Some VP Rumors and Convention Talk
Let’s get into some arguments over who’s gonna speak at the Republican convention and the veep. Bill Kristol is out there now saying that Thursday is the day to watch for Romney’s veep pick. Bill Kristol, Weekly Standard, appeared on Fox News, where he discussed an editorial published over the weekend in which he recommends that Romney pick either Paul Ryan or Marco Rubio.
Beyond that, by the way, he actually said that he’s heard that Chris Christie is back in the mix and he would love for it to be Chris Christie. Rubio and Ryan are both good, but if it’s Chris Christie, Kristol will be very, very happy. Stuart Varney, the fill-in host on Fox, asked Kristol to elaborate on his publication calling for Ryan or Rubio to join Romney on the ticket. Kristol took the opportunity to say that he recently learned that Chris Christie is also still in the running.
And he went on to say that he thinks that Thursday is the day to watch as the most likely time in which Romney would reveal his VP pick. He said, “You look at Romney’s schedule. He’s got events in Illinois Tuesday, Iowa Wednesday, a fundraising breakfast Thursday morning in New York. His calendar is then clear, so far as I [Bill Kristol] can tell, it’s Thursday afternoon and Friday. Then he starts a barnstorming tour Saturday in Virginia, North Carolina Sunday, Florida Monday, Ohio Tuesday.
