Engaging question in GOP veepstakes
Weighing the pluses and minuses of Sen. John McCain’s potential running mates is a favorite pastime. So nuptial news from the Sunshine State is inviting a new query: Does popping the question raise one’s stock in the veepstakes?
It’s no secret that Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is in the running, so it was big news when he proposed to his sweetheart of nine months, Carole Rome, on Thursday.
The longtime bachelor, whose single status created headaches for him in past campaigns, picked up a diamond-and-sapphire sparkler this week, according to the St. Petersburg Times.
The newspaper got the scoop from Crist: “She’s brilliant, beautiful and sweet. I’m very, very lucky.”
His spokeswoman, Erin Isaac, offered few other details. “We’re excited for him,” she said.
