Campaign 2012

Romney Taps Longtime Aide Beth Myers to Head Vice Presidential Search

Myers already gathering material on potential running mates, candidate tells ABC News.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has tapped longtime adviser Beth Myers to head the search for his running mate.

"Our campaign believes it is an important process to begin, and Beth Myers will do a thorough job leading the search. Beyond that, we aren’t going make any comments about the process itself," campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said on Monday.

 

Myers has been in Romney’s inner circle for years, serving as his chief of staff during his tenure as Massachusetts governor from 2003 to 2007 and as his campaign manager during his failed 2008 presidential bid.

Romney first shared the news in an interview with ABC News, to be aired Monday night.

"I've asked her to be the person who oversees the process of the vice presidential selection and vetting and analysis and so she's begun that process and is putting together the kinds of things you need to do to vet potential candidates," Romney said, according to an excerpt released by the network.
