In recent fundraising appearances around the country, Mitt Romney raised an estimated $1.5 million and showed up in Colorado Springs with surrogate campaigners including Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.

Jindal is said to be on the short list of vice presidential candidates. With three weeks left until the GOP Convention in Florida, many are watching the Mitt Romney app for the name of the running mate.

"I’m not going to be Vice President, but I do endorse Mitt Romney who I think is going to be a great president," said Florida Senator Marco Rubio.

A new poll showed which candidates Republican voters prefer.

Of those polled, 28-percent prefer Rubio over everyone else. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan are next at 16-percent each.

"The Obama administration and their campaign is just broken," said Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell.

McDonnell, Ohio Senator Rob Portman and former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty are at the bottom of the poll with six-percent each.
