Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, disclosed in a television interview that was broadcast Thursday that her husband is considering choosing a woman as his running mate.
Martinez, a conservative Republican and the first Latina governor in U.S. history, is among the people Mitt Romney has mentioned as someone he’s considered for the vice presidential nominee slot, or a cabinet position.
