A key point in the 2008 campaign of Republican presidential nominee John McCain was when he selected Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate – and introduced her for the first time in that role in Dayton. He has a suggestion for presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney when it comes to picking a VP – Ohio’s junior US Senator.

"I think that Rob Portman has to be one of the top contenders," McCain said. "He’s an incredible force in Washington on the economy and on budgetary issues. There’s nobody as qualified than him unless it’s Paul Ryan."

McCain was in Ohio campaigning with state treasurer Josh Mandel, who’s the GOP nominee running against incumbent Democratic US Senator Sherrod Brown.  Two other like VP contenders have also been stumping for Mandel - Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
