Mitt Romney's bus tour through six key swing states continues today. Along for the ride are some possible vice presidential contenders, including Republican Congressman Paul Ryan, will board the bus in his homestate of Wisconsin.
On Saturday, former Minn. Gov. Tim Pawlenty took a turn, catching up with the campaign in Pennsylvania.
Pawlenty, the Romney Campaign national co-chair, talks with Soledad this morning on "Starting Point" about Romney's search for the perfect running mate. Romney is "going to have great people to pick from. I think I can help him best in other ways," he says.
As for when Romney may pick a running mate, Pawlenty says they don't talk about the vp process in terms of timings or dynamics. "The V.P. process is something that's going to be kept under wraps until [Romney] makes his decision," he says.
Pawlenty also took time to respond to President Obama's immigration policy change, saying the President's decision to announce this initiative now may have broader implications.
"On the eve of the election of the presidential race, it looks political," Pawlenty says. "But more importantly, it’s a real issue. You have young children in this country who through no fault of their own are here. It’s an important issue. And it deserves to be addressed before the Congress. And as Governor Romney said on a long-term and permanent basis, so these people, young people, don't have to guess whether their status is gonna change depending on the outcome of any given election."
