It's clear that Mitt Romney will be the Republican candidate for presidency in November, but who will the former Massachusetts Gov. choose as his running mate?
According to his wife, Ann Romney, it just might be a woman. "We've been looking at that," she told CBS in an interview that aired today. And that might be a smart choice for the presidential hopeful -- the Washington Post reports: "...polls show that Romney still badly trails Obama among women and putting one on the ticket — or even just raising the possibility of a female running mate — could help carve into that support."
Top prospects include New Hampshire Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. However, several men have been considered, as well.
The Romneys spent the past week in New Hampshire where the CBS interview was taped. The break from the campaign trail will help Romney prepare for a final push of appearances and campaign giveaways before the 2012 Republican National Convention this August.
If Romney picked a female to be on his ticket this fall, would it influence your vote?
