(AP) While Democrat Barack Obama is in the Middle East continuing his overseas trip, Republican John McCain will be campaigning Wednesday in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
McCain's presidential campaign has not been helping tamp down speculation that he may soon announce his pick for a running mate. He was in New Hampshire Tuesday, not far from the lakeside vacation home of former rival Mitt Romney.
McCain is scheduled to travel to New Orleans later on Wednesday. The
campaign has been keeping his exact itinerary close to the vest, but Louisiana's Governor Bobby Jindal is among those being mentioned for vice president on the Republican ticket.
