I have to admit, I find it very strange that he’d make this announcement on a Saturday, but the sooner the better we learn who the pick is. All outlets are now reporting this, and the Weekly Standard has a press release from the Romney camp confirming.
We have lots of TAMs in Virginia, which as we all know is an very important state in the presidential race. I was crushed when it went to the Dumb Bastard in 2008. People are still speculating on who the VP choice will be. Virginia means it could be Gov. McDonnell, which would be an excellent choice. Others are saying it’s Paul Ryan. I’m not even going to hazard a guess except to say I really like the Patraeus idea and think Allen West would be an excellent choice as well. Susana Martinez has also been on my list as you know.
Two questions for you: Who do you think it will be? And who do you wish it would be?
Now, for some program notes: TAM Chat will be up starting at 845am ET for about an hour. Plus, we have the Tammy Radio Saturday Special Hour at 2pm PT where we would normally play a “Daily TAM Briefing” sneak peek. But if the announcement is made tomorrow morning I will go LIVE at 2pm PT with a Tammy Radio Special Report for the hour. TAM Chat will be up then as well. The live show will also be posted as a public podcast for those of you who can’t catch the live show.
Stay in touch with the blog for updates.
