(USATODAY) — Mitt Romney told reporters in Michigan that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is being looked at as his possible running mate, adding that a news story out earlier today about the Tea Party favorite not being vetted was “entirely false.”

“Marco Rubio is being thoroughly vetted as part of our process,” Romney said during a campaign stop in Holland, Mich.

ABC News had reported this morning that the freshman senator was not being vetted to be Mitt Romney’s running mate. The report cited “knowledgeable sources.”
