Trump's campaign chief to lead veep vetting


Donald Trump's campaign manager will oversee the presumptive Republican nominee's search for a vice presidential candidate.

Corey Lewandowski will be in charge of the team that will survey and vet potential running mates. That's according to a person familiar with the decision but not authorized to speak about it before it's announced.

Trump has said he'll name a running mate in July, perhaps at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

The political neophyte has said repeatedly that he wants a running mate from the political sphere with government experience -- particularly time working on Capitol Hill so he can get things done there and not have to rely on executive orders.

Lewandowski's new responsibilities were first reported Tuesday by The Washington Post.
