Mitt Romney To Announce VP Choice Via App

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has released a new mobile app as a tool to announce who his running mate for this year’s election will be.

The Mitt’s VP app, which is available for Android and iOS, will essentially be the first place that Romney announces his vice presidential choice. Users can sign up for push notifications to hear the news first. Here is more from iTunes: “Just download the app and when Mitt decides on his running mate, you’ll get an exclusive notification from the campaign letting you in on the exciting news before the press and just about everyone else (except maybe Ann).” Um, and everyone else who downloads the app, including the press.

The Washington Post has more: “Romney is expected to make a decision on his running mate sometime after his return to the United States and before the Republican National Convention, which kicks off in Tampa on Aug. 27.”

Let’s hope that the Romney camp spells the VP’s name right.
