Despite the Drudge Report’s article Thursday night reporting that Condoleezza Rice is the new frontrunner to be Mitt Romney’s running mate, a spokesperson for the former secretary of state tells ABC News she is still not interested in the job.
In an email the spokesperson said that Rice, who is on vacation, has no plans to comment specifically on the Drudge Report article, but that all of her previous statements denying interest in being Romney’s vice presidential pick “still stand.”

Rice, who was secretary of state under President George W. Bush, is now a professor at Stanford University.
