(NEW YORK) — Beth Myers, the head of Mitt Romney’s secretive vice presidential search, kept the mystery alive Friday when she gave a “Friday Follow” shout out to a number of potential running mates for the presumptive Republican nominee.
Tweeting from the handle @BethMyers2012, Myers, who only has one other tweet on her account, sent out a Follow Friday message with the names of six potential vice presidential contenders and one person most people don’t even think is being considered for the number two spot.
“#FF @KellyAyotte @timpawlenty@GovChristie @BobbyJindal@marcorubio @RepPaulRyan@newtgingrich,” Myers tweeted, spurring a flurry of speculation from reporters on Twitter about the names both on and off the list.
But soon after, Myers, tweeted a second message, rounding out the list with more names widely considered to be on Romney’s list.
“#FF @robportman @bobmcdonnell@CondoleezzaRice @johnthune@Gov_Martinez @RickSantorum.”
That doesn’t exactly narrow it down.
While Romney is on his foreign trip, the Romney campaign has dispatched a number of potential candidates, including Govs. Bobby Jindal, Bob McDonnell, and Tim Pawlenty, Sens. Rob Portman and Marco Rubio, and Rep. Paul Ryan to host events as a means of keeping his message in the news while he’s abroad.
