VP Watch: Rep. Connie Mack joins Jeb Bush in endorsing Marco Rubio for VP

Rep. Connie Mack (R-FL) walked into a room full of supporters, American flags, and Romney for President placards at this afternoon's grand opening of the GOP's Miami Victory Office.

After pledging allegiance to the flag of the United States, Mack took the floor where he took some swipes at President Obama and the Democratic senator from Florida, Bill Nelson.
"You know, Sen. Nelson is a lockstep liberal with Barack Obama," said Mack, the heavy favorite to win the Aug. 14th GOP Senate primary. He'd face Nelson in a general election. "When Barack Obama needed to pass the health-care law he turned to his friend in the Senate Bill Nelson, and Bill Nelson was there to help him. When he wanted to pass their stimulus bill, he turned to his friend Bill Nelson, and Bill Nelson was there to help him. When he wanted to make sure that the Keystone XL pipeline wasn't built, he got on the phone and called his friend Bill Nelson, and Bill Nelson stood with the president instead of the American people."

I personally don't think it's going to happen. I believe that Romney believes that any VP needs Executive (as in Governor) experience. That limits the choices.

At this point, I believe he'll pick Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell...but hey....what do I know?

Funny how the liberal media always mentions Portman & Pawlenty as Romney's best options for VP, but NEVER mentions McDonnell, even though McDonnell has so many obvious things going for him, not the least of which is the fact that he's a very successful & popular governor of a crucial swing state with plenty of other noteworthy accomplishments in both the public & private sectors.

Well, I guess if I was rooting for Obama's re-election, I wouldn't be promoting McDonnell as Romney's running mate either.
