Governors downplay running mate rumors
by UPI

WASHINGTON - Govs. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota, Mark Sanford of South Carolina and Tim Kaine of Virginia all downplayed potential vice presidential nods Sunday.

The governors told "Fox News Sunday" their busy schedules would likely derail any potential vice presidential bids in the general election campaign.

Pawlenty went first when asked if he would consider running beside Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

"You know, I have a day job," said Pawlenty, McCain's campaign co-chairman. "And I support him because I think he'd be a great president and not because I want to be vice president."

Sanford, another noted Republican, was equally savvy when addressing a possible McCain-Sanford ticket.

"I mean, you focus on the job at hand and, as I say, a number of us have small kids around the house as well," Sanford said. "And the two of those things keep us awfully busy."

Kaine also downplayed a potential bid should Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., win his party's nomination.

"My mom likes it if I'm on a list," Kaine said. "But I do have a very important job at hand, which is governing Virginia."

New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, also a guest on "Sunday," was not asked about a possible candidacy.
