McCain to announce his VP on 8/29 in Ohio ... Maybe
Mike Allen at Politico is reporting that Sen. McCain will definitely maybe name his running mate on his birthday on Friday, August 29 at a rally in Dayton, Ohio. Allen reports that McCain is organizing a major rally in Ohio that day and that this would be a logical time to announce his Vice President immediately following the Democrat National Convention. This would take up the weekend news coverage and help dampen any Convention bounce for Obama. As to the bigger question of who, Allen speculates that it could be Mitt Romney or Tim Pawlenty. Of course, Allen reports that senior campaign official say McCain could change the time and that he is not discussing the who with anyone so basically we are just guessing.
