Romney: Jeb Didn’t Speak to Me About Rubio for VP

Friday, 23 Mar 2012 03:53 PM


While Jeb Bush said in an interview this week that he supports Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., for vice president, Bush hasn’t raised the idea with Mitt Romney, whom he endorsed for president this week, Romney told conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt Thursday.

When Hewitt asked Romney whether Bush had talked to him privately about Rubio, the former Massachusetts governor responded, “No, he did not. He didn’t mention Marco to me in private. But obviously, there are a lot of terrific people who will be on someone’s list for VP. I hope I’m the nominee that gets to make that choice. It’ll be a great experience to see these guys and learn more about them.”

In the interview with Hewitt, Romney defended his aide Eric Fehrstrom for his comment that the Romney campaign could be re-done for the general election just like an Etch-a-Sketch.

“Everybody’s going to make a gaffe now and again,” Romney said. "I’ve certainly made my share of them, and I’m sure others will. The other candidates have as well. And everyone understands, of course, that Eric was talking about the organization of a campaign . . . The policies stay exactly the same.”
