Late last night, the Romney campaign announced that the Republican presidential candidate will be revealing his choice for running mate at 8:45 EST in Norfolk, Virginia.
Speculation has been running rampant, but most news outlets have been leaning toward the choice as Paul Ryan, the Congressman from Wisconsin.
Fox News is now reporting that a Republican source has confirmed that Ryan is the choice. The Los Angeles Times adds details on that report:
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has picked Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan to be his running mate, according to a Republican with knowledge of the development. They will appear together Saturday in Norfolk, Va., at the start of a four-state bus tour to introduce the newly minted GOP ticket to the nation.
The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because this person was not authorized to disclose the decision.
And now, NBC adds further confirmation with more sources:
Three different sources close to the Romney campaign indicate to NBC News that Mitt Romney will announce House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential running mate at tomorrow’s campaign event in Norfolk, VA.
Fittingly, this morning’s announcement will be made in front of the USS Wisconsin.
