Aspen, Colorado (CNN) – Is Mitt Romney nearing a final decision on who will be his running mate this fall?

Here's one clue: Romney's longtime adviser Beth Myers, who has been tasked with heading up the campaign's search for a running mate, will be traveling with the Republican presidential hopeful on Thursday when he arrives in Colorado to meet with GOP governors, according to a source familiar with the trip.

Romney will hold a public event with several Republican governors in Basalt before attending a fundraiser in Aspen later in the evening. A who's who of top GOP officeholders, strategists and donors are gathered in the ski resort town for a retreat hosted by the Republican Governors Association.

At least one Republican governor thought to be on Romney's final short list – Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal – is already in Aspen.

While the purpose of Myers' trip is being tightly held, her presence at Romney's side is a reminder that he could announce his running mate at any time in the coming weeks.
