Obama: “I’ve made the selection”
EMPORIA, Va. – U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama confirmed on Thursday that he has chosen a vice-presidential running mate but gave no further details.
The Obama campaign has said it plans to announce the running-mate decision to supporters first through a text message. They are not revealing the timing of the announcement but it is expected within the next two days.
Obama campaigned on Thursday with Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine, one of the reported finalists for the No. 2 slot on his ticket. Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh and Delaware Sen. Joseph Biden are also thought to be top contenders for the job.
