Romney: "Rubio is being thoroughly vetted"

Mitt Romney makes a surprise announcement late Tuesday about Marco Rubio. He is being vetted for VP after all.

Romney: Rubio is being vetted as VP possibility

Mitt Romney said Tuesday that a report that Sen. Marco Rubio was not being vetted as a possible running mate is "entirely false."

"Marco Rubio is being thoroughly vetted as part of our process," Romney said in Holland, Michigan.

An earlier ABC News report said that Rubio had not yet been asked for documents in connection with the vetting process, which presumably began approximately two months ago when Romney chose his former gubernatorial office chief of staff, Beth Myers, to lead his selection effort.

"There was a story that originated today, apparently at ABC, based on reports of supposedly outside, unnamed advisors of mine," Romney continued. "I can't imagine who such people are but I can tell you this. 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."
