Ann Romney has announced that her husband, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, is looking at a woman for his VP running mate.
"[We've] been looking at that and I love that option as well," Ann Romney told CBS News’ Jan Crawford. They want "someone that obviously can do the job but will be able to carry through with some of the other responsibilities."
But Mitt Romney is not actually considering women — he only wants to repair a poor publicity campaign. Facing the perception that he is the candidate for “old, straight, white men,” the former governor is trying to win back minority groups. By openly keeping minority candidates in the running, Romney can hold onto these key voters for a while longer.
