Some GOP VP hopefuls face common personal issues
WASHINGTON -- When Mitt Romney picks his GOP running mate, odds are he'll select someone with far less wealth than his own. Unless he chooses Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman, one of the richest women in America.
But some of his other potential running mates have the same financial issues as many Americans.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio faced possible foreclosure two years ago on a home he co-owned. South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley repeatedly paid fines for not filing her income taxes on time. And six of them are confronting college costs for their children by starting savings accounts for them.
The Associated Press reviewed publicly available financial information for 13 potential vice presidential picks. The list includes five members of Congress, whose disclosure information was made public Thursday.
