(PNS reporting from WASHINGTON) BREAKING ÑEWS: Mitt Romney’s campaign “will neither confirm nor deny” that the GOP presidential candidate has chosen a running mate. The candidate’s vice presidential “short list” has long included Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and former governor Tim Pawlenty, but now campaign insiders are suggesting the search is over and Romney has chosen country music legend Randy Travis.
Once deemed George Bush Sr.’s favorite country music star, Travis has been actively campaigning for the slot for over a week, especially in Texas.
Savvy political observers believe that the choice of Travis balances out the ticket. Travis is male, of Anglo-Saxon descent, and loves to lay drunk and naked on rural highways, just like most Tea Party members.
“The pick is a game changer, to be sure,” said Glen Campbell.
