(Newsroom America) -- A Reuters report said Tuesday that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has narrowed his running mate choice to three potential candidates.
"Ohio Senator Rob Portman, former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal all offer various strengths to Romney should he decide to pick one of them to join his battle to unseat President Barack Obama and his vice president, Joe Biden, in the November 6 election," Reuters said.
A number of Republicans believe Romney will break tradition and announce his VP choice weeks before the party's nominating convention, which will be held in Tampa, Fla., next month.
Reuters said Romney campaign officials refused to discuss the issue.
"No decision has been made. An announcement could happen any time between now and the convention, but it will only happen after a decision has been made and no decision has been made," Romney campaign senior adviser Eric Fehrnstrom told the news wire service.
