WHOOPS! Ben Carson accidentally confirms Trump's VP shortlist to the WaPost; Update: Donald Trump responds

Editor’s note: This post has been updated with a response from Donald Trump.

During an interview with the Washington Post, No. 1 Donald Trump campaign surrogate Ben Carson accidentally confirmed the names on the presumptive nominee’s VP short-list  — a list that includes former Alaska governor Sarah Palin:

Also on the list, according to Carson, are former rivals John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Chris Christie:

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ben Carson, the neurosurgeon turned presidential candidate turned unfiltered pitchman for Donald Trump and now part of the presumptive nominee’s vice presidential search committee, sat in the back of a Town Car with his wife, Candy, on his way to a televised interview. He had just explained to the reporter riding along that he wanted no role in a Trump administration when news arrived of a new pollnaming him as the best liked of a list of potential running mates.

“Who else was on the list?” he asked quietly, maintaining his usual inscrutable calm. The most favorably regarded contenders after himself, he was told, were John Kasich, Little Marco, Lyin’ Ted and Chris Christie.

“Those are all people on our list,” he said.

Trump did say last week that his shortlist was “5 or 6” people. Unless Carson is out of the loop, this looks like the group being vetted by the campaign:
