A report yesterday morning by the New York Times said Mitt Romney's "friends believe" he has "reached a decision" on a running mate. The Romney campaign responded: The friends are wrong.
“No decision’s been made on V.P.,” said Eric Fehrnstrom, a top Romney adviser, speaking to a press pool in Baton Rouge, La. “There is no decision on V.P.”
When specifically asked by The Associated Press outside a Louisiana fund-raiser if the nomination could occur this week, Mr. Fehrnstrom said: “Technically, it could, but the governor hasn’t made a decision. It will only happen after he makes a decision.”
