Although it has not been confirmed that Mitt Romney will nominate Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan for Vice President, we do now know that he will be making his announcement at 9:00 am this morning in Norfolk, Virginia and that he will doing so on the USS Wisconsin.
The announcement will come at the start of a 4 day campaign bus tour through four battleground states. The “Romney Plan For A Stronger Middle Class” bus tour was first scheduled weeks ago but the exact itinerary had not been released until now and in that itinerary may lie the answer to who Mitt Romney will be picking as his running mate.
According to the Romney campaign the first event will take place at 8:45 AM EDT on the USS Wisconsin, which is docked in Norfolk. According to the schedule, Romney will be taking a tour of the USS Wisconsin.
However, scheduling a “tour” of the USS Wisconsin, fifteen minutes before you are suppose to announce your vice presidential nominee might seem odd, unless of course the person who your are nominating for Vice President happens to be a Congressman from Wisconsin, such as Congressman Paul Ryan who has been rumored to be a top contender for the job on Romney’s VP short list.
