Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., says Jeb Bush is the GOP VP candidate who could most likely put Mitt Romney over the top in the November elections.

“He’d be an outstanding pick. It’s up to Gov. Romney but if I had to recommend a single person it would be Jeb,” Graham told The Hill.

Graham is pushing for Republicans to mend their fences and quickly unify behind Romney.  Graham is a close friend of Sen. John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee who had trouble winning over many grassroots coalitions during that contest.

Chatter is picking up on Capitol Hill that Bush could be a dark horse, according to The Hill, even though the current favorites seem to be Florida's Marco Rubio and Ohio's Rob Portman.

Senior political strategists think Bush could deliver Florida for Romney and help him among Hispanic and Catholic voters.

The Hill pointed out that Bush fanned speculation last month when he told Newsmax that “I’d consider it, but I doubt I’ll get a call and I don’t know if it’s the right thing for me to do.”

Bush has since tried to bury the notion that he might join the ticket.

“While the support is flattering, his decision has not changed. Gov. Bush will not be a candidate for VP,” said Jaryn Emhof, his spokeswoman.
