Mitt Romney's short list of vice-presidential candidates is expected to include some 10 to 15 names.

That according to NBC News, which cites a source with knowledge of the deliberations.

Today, Romney campaigned in New Hampshire with Sen. Kelly Ayotte.

She's a longtime ally who's receiving scrutiny as a potential contender for the number two spot on the GOP ticket.

Curing the campaign season, Romney has held a number of events with Republican officeholders often mentioned as potential running mates. Those officeholders include Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, and Senator Rob Portman of Ohio.

The selection process is being overseen by a longtime Romney aide Beth Myers.
