Romney Considers Naming Veep Early

Mitt Romney acknowledged he is considering naming his vice presidential running mate earlier than usual to better compete with President Obama, Reuters reports.

"The reasoning, advisers say, is that two candidates would be able to raise more money and engage Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in battle with polls showing Americans closely divided on whether to pick the Republican challenger or Democratic incumbent in the November 6 election."

"Picking the choice early could also serve to guarantee some positive news coverage at a time when Romney is under fire from Obama over whether he should release more financial information about his wealth."
