Republican sources confirmed to ABC’s Jonathan Karl that Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., often mentioned as a top contender for the second spot on the GOP presidential ticket, is so far not being vetted by Mitt Romney’s vice presidential search team.  

It has been almost two months since Romney picked long-time aide Beth Myers to head his veep search. The fact that Rubio has not been asked to turn over any official documents to the campaign by now suggests that the senator is not on Romney’s short list.

Rubio has been a surrogate for Romney over the course of campaign, accompanying the nominee on campaign stops and praising his position on issues from taxes to immigration. Rubio is expected to speak at an event in New York this week for Restore Our Future, the Super PAC that supports Romney.
