Del. Chris Saxman Talks to CBS19 about McCain's Potential VP Picks

August 20, 2008

Barack Obama's rival, Republican John McCain is expected to announce his pick for Vice President on August 29th in Dayton, Ohio.

It's also the same day McCain will turn 72. CBS19 spoke with Delegate Chris Saxman Wednesday via satellite about the prospect of Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor being on the ticket for the Republicans.

Del. Chris Saxman and McCain VA Co-Chairman said of Cantor, "He's a good conservative. He's very articulate. If Senator McCain picks Eric Cantor I'd be very pleased, but it's his choice to make, and I know he'll make the best pick for the country. Not the choice based on geography.

The Republican National Convention kicks off Monday, September 1st in St. Paul, Minnesota. Senator Joe Lieberman from Connecticut will speak at the GOP convention.

Lieberman was the Democratic party's Vice-Presidential candidate in 2000. He's now an independent, and is considered a potential McCain running mate.
