Speaking to the press this afternoon in Concord, N.H., Senator Rob Portman revealed that he hasn’t been to nearby Wolfeboro, where Mitt Romney has been vacationing this week with his family.

Portman, heavily rumored to be on Romney’s short list of running mates, spent the day just a 45-minute drive from Romney’s lakeside compound.

So what has Portman been doing?

While Portman canoes, the media continues to fish for clues to Romney’s pick.
