Potential Romney Mates Stress Conservative Cred

June 9, 2012

Stands up to unions? Check. Not afraid to chop government budgets? You bet. Cut taxes? Done that.

With Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker a GOP hero after his recall election triumph, prominent Republicans seen as possible vice presidential picks are taking pains to remind conservatives they're working from a similar playbook.

A mere mention of Walker's name drew cheers Friday in Chicago during the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Potential vice presidential picks - among them New Jersey's Chris Christie, Louisiana's Bobby Jindal and Virginia's Bob McDonnell - paid visits to the C-PAC conference in President Barack Obama's back yard, where they eagerly boasted of their own accomplishments.

The presumptive GOP presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, is expected to give those three and others a look before choosing his running mate this summer.
