As speculation heats up over Mitt Romney’s choice for a running mate, his campaign announced Tuesday that it has signed up two staff members to help whoever is chosen.
The two VP staff members: Kevin Sheridan, a former Republican National Committee spokesman who will be communications director, and Randy Bumps, a former political director for the National Republican Senatorial Committee who will be the director of operations.
“I’m proud to add Randy and Kevin to our growing team,” Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades said in a statement. “They both have enjoyed long and distinguished careers in our party. Their work will be vital as we move forward in the campaign to defeat President Obama and elect Mitt Romney.”
