Gillespie: Not Running Search for Romney's Running Mate

Veteran Republican strategist Ed Gillespie, who recently joined Mitt Romney’s campaign as a senior advisor, shot down reports that he will run Romney’s search for a running mate.

“It was news to me,” he said on Fox News Sunday, adding that “as far as I know, it is not accurate.”


Gillespie, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee who advised President George W. Bush and worked as a successful lobbyist in Washington, said that Romney is still emerging from his role as a primary contender and stepping into his role as the presumptive Republican nominee. “There is a shift going on,” Gillespie said.

Asked if Romney will name his running mate early in the process, Gillespie said, “I don’t know if that’s the case.”
