The presumptive Republican nominee tells ABC News’ Diane Sawyer that he’s appointed Beth Myers, one of his closest advisers, to oversee the vetting process for his vice presidential running mate.
“I have selected someone who has been a counselor of mine for a number of years, Beth Myers,” Romney told Sawyer in an interview set to air on ABC’s “World News” and “Nightline.” “She was my chief of staff when I was governor. I’ve asked her to be the person who oversees the process of the vice presidential selection and vetting an analysis, and so she’s begun that process and is putting together the kinds of things you need to do to vet potential candidates.”
Myers, who previously managed Romney’s 2008 Republican presidential bid, is one of the former governor’s longest serving advisers and is personally close to the candidate and his wife, Ann, who is also expected to play a pivotal role in helping Romney choose a No. 2 to join the GOP ticket.
