Ann Coulter: ‘Mistake’ To Tap Marco Rubio For VP

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter, a supporter of Mitt Romney, said Sunday that it would be a mistake to select Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) as the GOP’s vice presidential nominee.

“I think that would be a mistake because the same people who loved Rubio loved Rick Perry,” Coulter said on ABC’s This Week. “I want someone who’s been a bit more tested.”

Rubio has persistently lowered expectations that he’ll be the VP pick but speculations to the contrary are rampant among political pundits.
