Romney will announce his choice for Vice President in Norfolk, Virginia at 8:45am EST, Romney campaign spokesman Lenny Alcivar told reporters in an email this evening.
The announcement is being made at the USS Wisconsin. Its still unclear whom he will choose, but the odds that it is Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., seemed to increase when National Reviews Robert Costa noted that a charter plane flew from Boston to Ryans hometown of Janesville, Wis., today.

If Mitt is a waffler, Obama is a confirmed radical leftwing socialist. With Mitt, there is at least some hope he can be pressured into a few conservative agenda items. With Obama it will be big fat ZERO.
Note to all purists: Do not cut off your nose to spite the ears.
There seems to be a serious split on this.
Can someone please summarize what’s really, really bad about Ryan?
I’m not a big Romney fan myself, but if he picks Ryan, he moves up a notch in my book.

You can only act stupid so long before the body politic before it calls B.S. on you.
“Well, the truth is, if you are in a battleground state, vote the heck for Romney. Period. You cant believe in constitutional America and do otherwise.
But if you are in a state that wont matter, vote your conscience, stay home, down ticket, as you wish.”
Couldn’t agree more.
Ryan will be made the poster child of Mediscare. The Rats will scare the seniors 24-7 that their social security and medicare will be killed by Ryan. A ryan look alike was already in their commercial pushing grandma off the cliff.
Welcome you the FR. Bet I have been here longer.
Great... you are voting for socialism by staying home. I’m not a fan of Romney, but we have to bounce this Kenyan socialist the hell out of the Whitehouse! There is no other choice... Obama loves to hear folks like you will help him in killing this country. Pretty damn sad...
Most people of conservative bent expected Sarah Palin to join the race. She didn’t, which left a lot of quickly fading second stringers — and Mitt. How to avoid having that happen in primaries (which had totally pitiful turnouts) is of more importance than whether or not to vote the only viable unObama now.
Whereas there is no major issue the Rats can bombard Rubio with. The best they got on him is something about charging a RNC credit card for personal expenses, but that matter has already been debunked.
The rinos will not cram romney down my throat— just yours.
The GOP can of course reciprocate with ads about death panels.
“Four years ago some FReepers were following a private plane flying from Alaska to Ohio (they noted the plane’s tail number, if I remember correctly).”
Thanks for remembering..
I was in the middle of that one, that night.
If it's Ryan the Republicans will lose big. Practically every one of the 50%+ on government transfer payments of some kind will vote against the Republican ticket.What are you saying, that Romney should pick Rangel?
I’m breathing a sigh of relief as Pennsylvania slips from the radar as a battleground state and the focues shifts to OH and MI.
Is there a candidate they wouldn’t demonize?
