*Correction: Rubio is Being Vetted for VP Slot

Mitt Romney responded last night to the rumors that alleged Senator Marco Rubio, R-Fla., was not being considered for the vice president position:
"There was a story that originated today, apparently at ABC, based on reports of supposedly outside, unnamed advisers of mine… They know nothing about the vice presidential selection or evaluation process. There are only two people in this country who know who are being vetted and who are not, and that's Beth Myers and myself… Marco Rubio is being thoroughly vetted as part of our process.”
Now that the rumors are dispelled Jonathan Karl of ABC News, who originally reported the speculation regarding Rubio, explains why Romney reached out to make an official statement here.
