Despite saying Thursday that he hadn't yet decided on a running mate, Mitt Romney is throwing off clues that he's nearing a decision: Three of his top strategists accompanied him on a Western swing this week to Colorado and Nevada.

The trio included Beth Myers, who is leading his vice presidential selection process, as well as former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie and senior campaign adviser Kevin Madden.

All three accompanied Romney to a Republican Governors Association meeting in Aspen, attended by several governors who may be under consideration as Romney's running mate. All three also flew with Romney from Aspen to Las Vegas on Friday.

 

During a radio interview Thursday with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Romney declined an opportunity to make an announcement about his pick or the timing for a decision. But he praised the "large number of people" from whom he's had to choose.

The governors at the RGA gave brief remarks praising Romney and highlighting their own accomplishments using conservative principles. The potential vice presidential picks at the meeting included New Jersey's Chris Christie and Louisiana's Bobby Jindal.

Romney held a campaign event Friday at Sierra Truck Body & Equipment in North Las Vegas. From there, he was scheduled to travel to a series of fundraisers in Reno.
