Romney: Veep hunt begins "pretty soon"

Mitt Romney, after being asked this morning who's on his campaign's list of possible vice-presidential running mates.

"No list yet.... That's a process which has not begun yet, but will probably begin pretty soon."

BuzzFeed reports today that GOP vet, Ed Gillespie, might "take the lead" on the VP hunt, which will be an incredibly intensive one.

Republican operatives say that Romney will have to vet his running-mate more deeply than ever done before.

“It’s not going to be pretty,” said Rick Wilson. “It’s not only about whether they paid their taxes, but are they ready to face the cameras and have they ever said anything that get used in an ad. You never had to deal with this YouTube archive before.”
