In a fundraising email, Ann Romney seems to reveal that Mitt Romney's VP announcement will come in "a few short hours," or it could just mean that the winner of the contest will come in a few hours. 

 I can't wait to find out who Mitt will choose as his running mate. I'm just as excited as everyone else to meet the other half of America's Comeback Team!

In just a few short hours one lucky supporter will win the remarkable opportunity to meet Mitt and his VP pick in person. Don't miss out!

Enter now at:

It's history in the making -- and this could be your chance to be part of it. 

Thanks and good luck!

Ann Romney

UPDATE: The fine print reveals that the contest goes until Friday: 

The Promotion begins on Monday, August 6, 2012 at 12:01am Eastern Daylight Time and ends on Friday, August 10, 2012 at 11:59pm Eastern Daylight Time ("Entry Period"). All entries must be received by 11:59pm Eastern Daylight Time on Friday, August 10, 2012.

So what is happening in "a few short hours"?
