Now that the Republican presidential campaign is in full swing, talk has begun about possible candidates for the vice presidential nomination. Given the ascension of many attractive Republicans in the elections of 2009-2010, there is no shortage of possibilities being bandied about, Politico reports.
 
Front-runner Mitt Romney has reportedly even mentioned three possible candidates by name: Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. McDonnell has expressed interest in the position.
 
Other names that have come up – in no particular order -- include Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, South Dakota Sen. John Thune, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
 
GOP insiders tab Rubio as the front-runner. “He fits every box you’re looking for when you’re looking for a VP, and then some,” said strategist Chip Saltsman.
