AUSTIN (AP) - Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison says she hasn't been asked to become Republican John McCain's running mate, despite some speculation that the Texas congresswoman is in the running.
Hutchison told a gathering of the Texas Association of Counties on Thursday that she doesn't have plans to be in Ohio, where McCain is expected to announce his vice presidential pick Friday.
Hutchison later confirmed to reporters that she has not been asked, and said she understands that McCain has made his decision.
In speaking to the counties group, Hutchison sounded much more like a potential candidate for Texas governor in 2010 but wouldn't yet confirm she's entering that race.
