Presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney's long-awaited vice presidential selection is imminent, The New York Times reports.
According to The Times, Romney's friends believe the candidate has reached a decision and that the announcement could come as early as this week.
The report comes amid intense speculation over who will comprise the other half of the Republican ticket — with the likes of former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sen. John Thune (R-SD) all thought to be on the short list.
