Fallin Flattered By VP Chatter

KSCB News - April 19, 2012 8:11 am

A spokesman for Republican Governor Mary

Fallin says she’s "flattered" to be mentioned as a possible vice

presidential candidate, but that she is focused on her job as the

state’s top executive.

Fallin’s name was mentioned as a "longshot" running mate for

Mitt Romney during a segment Wednesday morning on ABC’s "Good

Morning America."

Fallin spokesman Alex Weintz says the governor has not had any

conversations with the Romney campaign about a vice presidential

nomination, and she has yet to endorse a candidate in the

presidential race. Rick Santorum won Oklahoma’s GOP presidential

primary on March 6th with 34 percent of the vote. Romney barely

edged Newt Gingrich for a second-place finish.

A former lieutenant governor, Fallin served two terms in the

U.S. House before her 2010 election as governor.
