(CNN) – Sen. Kelly Ayotte, the New Hampshire lawmaker sometimes mentioned as a potential running mate for Mitt Romney, will march in a July 4th parade alongside the presumptive GOP nominee in her home state Wednesday, a Republican source confirmed Tuesday.

Ayotte and Romney will march down Main Street in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, where Romney has been spending some time away from the campaign trail at his lakeside vacation home.

Last week Ayotte indicated in an interview she was "focused on representing New Hampshire," without saying whether she had begun a vice presidential vetting process with Romney's campaign staff.

In an interview with the Boston Herald published in May, the junior senator floated the idea of debating with Vice President Joe Biden, saying she would find the situation "quite enjoyable."

Ayotte said she "would love" to go head-to-head with Vice President Joe Biden on the rising federal debt.

"The vice president does have a way with words," Ayotte joked, according the paper.

Ayotte's July 4th appearance with Romney was first reported by the Boston Globe.

CNN Political Editor Paul Steinhauser contributed to this report.
