Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, who campaigned for Mitt Romney during the primaries and is often floated as a possible vice presidential pick, told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday that he is not currently being vetted by the Romney campaign.
The vice presidential speculation is “actually Romney’s fault," McDonnell joked during a meeting with the Washington Examiner's editorial board. He recalled that at a fundraiser last year, Romney mentioned him at a Virginia Beach fundraiser as a possible vice presidential choice along with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. "And my life’s been miserable ever since.”
McDonnell said he was not currently being vetted for the nomination and declined to say whether he'd agree to be vetted. “I’ll let you know if they ask me,” he said.
