Romney begins search for VP candidate

Mitt Romney has started his search for a running mate.

The presumptive GOP presidential nominee has named Beth Myers to oversee the selection process and vetting for a vice presidential candidate.

Myers served as chief of staff for Romney while he was governor here in Massachusetts.   She is currently a senior adviser for his presidential campaign.

Potential vice presidential running mates go thru an extensive screening…providing  reams of information about themselves, including financial.

Although the Republican convention in Tampa isn’t until August, the search for a running mate starts early. 

Yet the presidential candidates usually don’t announce  their choice until just before their party’s convention.
