Hemera/Thinkstock(BATON ROUGE, La.) — A senior advisor to Mitt Romney pushed back today on reports that a vice presidential running mate has already been chosen.

Eric Fehrnstrom, speaking to reporters after a fundraiser for the candidate that was also attended by rumored vice presidential short-lister Gov. Bobby Jindal, said firmly, “No decision has been made on VP.”

Fehrnstrom was asked specifically about a New York Times story this morning that reported, “Mr. Romney has reached a decision, his friends believe, and he may disclose it as soon as this week.”

Asked whether Romney spoke to Jindal to discuss the decision, Fehrnstrom confirmed that when they met they “didn’t talk about VP.”

“Education was one of the topics they covered but they did not discuss VP,” he said.

“There is no decision on VP,” Fehrnstrom reiterated, when pressed again on the report.
