There seems to be a bit of a question about McCain's upcoming schedule for the next few days, as it pertains to rumors about his possible VP pick.
U.S. News and World report is saying, "Romney's out". The "why" of the move--if true--is the subject of speculation at this point.
Politico weighs in first.
McCain is planning to roll out his vice presidential nominee in three battleground states this weekend, with large-scale rallies planned for Ohio, Pennsylvania and Missouri, according to aides and advisers.
The GOP nominee-in-waiting will move to immediately change the campaign conversation from Barack Obama’s football stadium acceptance speech Thursday to the new Republican ticket, to be revealed at a noontime Friday rally in a Dayton, Ohio, basketball arena. McCain and his running mate will then travel by bus to Pennsylvania, where they’ll hold an outdoor event at a minor league baseball stadium in Washington County, just southwest of Pittsburgh. On Sunday, the duo will head to suburban St. Louis for another event to be held at a minor league baseball stadium, this one in O’Fallon, Mo.
Allahpundit at Hot Air, in a comment to the above: "Note well: There seems to be no Saturday event on the schedule. Joementum?"
We'll only report that today we obtained our ticket for Saturday's event at Consol Field, where McCain and his new running mate are set to make a 5 pm appearance on their Road to the Convention.
We're not sure if this clears anything up, but we'll echo this sentiment from Allah:
"Is Maverick actually going to drop Joementum on us on Friday?"
