Mitt Romney is expected to announce his selection for vice-president Saturday morning at 8:45 eastern standard time. The announcement will be made in Norfolk, Virginia, on the U.S.S. Wisconsin. That particular location adds fuel to the speculation that Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan will be Romney’s choice. Ryan is the chairman of the House Budget Committee.
To further the Ryan speculation, conservative outlet National Review published this interesting tidbit on Friday:
Take note, veep watchers: Earlier today, a charter plane took off in Boston, stopped in Chicago, then flew to the tiny airport in Janesville, Wis. Janesville, of course, is the hometown of Representative Paul Ryan, a top vice-presidential contender. According to a source on the ground, the plane is still in Wisconsin.
Tomorrow morning, Mitt Romney will visit the USS Wisconsin in Norfolk, Va. For what it’s worth, Ryan is scheduled to be on vacation in Colorado.
