The Washington Post:
On Wednesday, several of the Republicans thought to be on Romney’s shortlist were busy proving their mettle on the campaign trail.Romney ha utilizado New Hampshire para anuncios y celebraciones clave. Allí anunció su candidatura presidencial el 2 de junio de 2011 y celebró sus victorias en las primarias de Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware y Nueva York, que lo confirmaron como el inevitable nominado republicano el 24 de abril de este año. Así que es lógico pensar que puede ser también el lugar escogido para anunciar a su running-mate. Y su agenda para mañana sigue estando vacía...
Portman headlined a five-stop bus tour that is shadowing President Obama in Colorado, spending a nearly 12-hour day on the trail in a key battleground state.
(...) Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) will be in Colorado stumping for Romney on Thursday. Former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty (R), meanwhile, headlined two events for Romney in Michigan on Wednesday.
The campaign stops marked the beginning of a busy few days for the rumored vice-presidential shortlisters.
On Friday and Saturday, Pawlenty will be in New Hampshire headlining four events, including an ice cream social with state Republicans in Manchester. Portman is expected to join Romney next Tuesday on the final leg of his four-state bus tour.
Another reported finalist in the race for the No. 2 spot, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), will be taking a little time off the trail: Ryan plans to take a week-long vacation in Colorado with his family starting Saturday.
