Pick your vice presidential nominee!

There’s no greater guessing game in political Washington than speculating about the identity of the Republican vice presidential nominee.

Candidates are regularly touted, torn down and touted again — all within a few newscycles. We’ve already written extensively about the potential frontrunner — It’s Portman! No, it’s Rubio! — but now we are giving you the chance to play the strategist and make the pick on who should join former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney on the ticket this fall.

Do you want someone from the establishment wing of the GOP or the tea party end? A safe choice or a potential game changer? A Senator, a governor or someone with no experience in elected office?

Play our “pick your own vice president” game below. You may be surprised by who you choose!
