Some big Veepstakes news from The Hill's Alexander Bolton:
Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) has reemerged as a viable vice presidential candidate who would check many of the boxes Mitt Romney is looking for in a running mate.
.... In an interview with The Hill, Thune acknowledged he’s been to Boston to meet Romney’s senior advisers and has met Beth Myers, who is leading the search for the vice presidential nominee.
Beyond that, Thune isn't specific.
The question is whether his meeting with Myers took place as just a common courtesy while the two were at an elite retreat in Utah last moth, or was part of something more formal.
