Gillespie Heading Up Romney’s Veep Search?


BuzzFeed reports that Ed Gillespie, former RNC chair and chair of the Republican State Leadership Committee, will be heading up Mitt Romney’s veep search effort.

Gillespie, a friend of NRO, has ties to several figures mentioned as possible running mates for Romney. He headed up Ohio governor John Kasich’s presidential campaign in the 2000 cycle. He was chairman of Virginia governor Bob McDonnell’s gubernatorial campaign in 2009. He ran the RNC in the 2004 cycle, when Oklahoma senator Tom Coburn, South Carolina senator Jim DeMint, and Indiana governor Mitch Daniels were elected.
