Romney will announce his choice for Vice President in Norfolk, Virginia at 8:45am EST, Romney campaign spokesman Lenny Alcivar told reporters in an email this evening.
The announcement is being made at the USS Wisconsin. Its still unclear whom he will choose, but the odds that it is Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., seemed to increase when National Reviews Robert Costa noted that a charter plane flew from Boston to Ryans hometown of Janesville, Wis., today.

oh please god good choice
I think Ryan would be a GREAT choice!
I like Ryan. I don’t like romney. I will stay home but the future is bright.
ryan would ignite the base thus making obummer toast
I wanted Rubio but I’ll take Ryan.
Staying home means you are voting for Obama.
WHY DO YOU HATE AMERICA???
Sorry, you don’t HAVE the choice of staying home this time, if you give a damn about the future of this country.
This will be the news of the day.
He needs a VP candidate now to go after Obama so he doesn’t have to directly.
Unfortunately many people are ‘staying home’ or at least just voting down ticket. Why they think that will help to remove Obama I do not know. Their arguments typically say if we have a strong down ticket we can tie Obama’s hands, but that isn’t true - the man just does what he wants and no one stops him. I’m really p.o.’d that people think not voting or just not voting for Prez is okay.
I was almost prepared to stay home too, but if Romney picks Ryan-or Rubio or Jindal- I will RUN to my polling place with hope for the future.
If we stay home, there is NO hope!
Ryan is at about 80% on Intrade. Up from about 20% a few hours ago.
This is a very lively argument. Vote Mitt, vote a spoiler/protest, vote nothing (virtually nobody is saying vote Obama). If Mitt were to keep all his current campaign promises it would be very little to worry. But Mitt waffles and Mitt has been very leftist (like the first implementer of gaaaaay ‘marriage’). Of course Obama will never ever accuse Mitt of being too leftist.
Ryan would be a very credible GOP act to follow eight years of Romney.
Better choice would be for Mittens to abdicate the top spot and be the VP.
Well, the truth is, if you are in a battleground state, vote the heck for Romney. Period. You can’t believe in constitutional America and do otherwise.
But if you are in a state that won’t matter, vote your conscience, stay home, down ticket, as you wish.
The only negative is the Dems have a campaign against him already.
Paul Ryan trading at 75-80 on Intrade right now.
Paul Ryan vs Joe Biden. An intellectual mismatch of gigantic proporitions.
It’s going to beeee..... WALKER!!!
So did REAGAN, if you recall. It’s why Conservatives demanded he pick a conservative, like Dan Quail, as VP.
