ABC News's Jonathan Karl, who keeps close tabs on potential vice presidential contenders, says Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., isn't in the running as Mitt Romney's pick. "Knowledgeable Republican sources tell me that Rubio is not being vetted by Mitt Romney's vice presidential search team. He has not been asked to complete any questionnaires or been asked to turn over any financial documents typically required of potential vice presidential candidates," Karl wrote this morning.
"Although it is possible that Rubio may yet be asked to go through the vetting process, it has been nearly two months since Romney named his long-time aide Beth Myers to run his vice presidential search," Karl wrote. "The fact that Rubio has not been asked to turn over any documents by now is a strong indication that he is not on Romney's short list of potential running mates."
