Said Rice at a fundraiser in California:
We care about the future of this country and the future of the world and I’m delighted to join so many friends here in supporting and, in my case, endorsing Gov. Mitt Romney for president of the United States. We have to defend the country, not just from (a position of) strength and power but from a sense of values of who we are.
GOP insiders tell Capitol Hill Blue that Rice is on Romney’s “short list” of potential picks as a running mate. Focus groups and GOP internal polling show Rice could help Romney with two constituencies he needs — women and African Americans — to beat incumbent President Obama.
