Washington: Indian-Americans - Bobby Jindal and Nikki Haley are emerging as possible vice-presidential running mate of Mitt Romney, who is expected to bag the Republican Party's nomination for presidential polls.

However both Jindal, the governor of Louisiana, and Haley, the gof South Carolina , have repeatedly denied that they are in the race for being considered as the vicepresidential running mate for Romney, who is now almost all set to bag the party's ticket to challenge incumbent president Barack Obama in November's presidential elections.

In its list of 10 possible running mates of Romney, CBS News named both Jindal and Haley. In an interview to the news channel, top Republican senator, John McCain, said likely Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney should consider Jindal.

"There are a number of candidates we have out there, Bobby Jindal. Marco Rubio is in the top tier, Chris Christie ," McCain said.

"Two-term governor of Louisiana is considered a rising star within the Republican Party. The son of Indian immigrants, Jindal campaigned during his first campaign to be governor on rooting out political corruption and turning around a state budget heading to financial crisis. He reduced the deficit through spending cuts that includes reducing state employee pensions," CBS News said.

The first Indian-American to serve as governor, Jindal endorsed Rick Perry, the governor of neighboring Texas, early in the campaign and has remained neutral since Perry dropped out.

Currently the youngest governor in the country and the first Indian-American woman to run a state, Haley garnered national attention during her campaign and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin endorsed her, it added.

Haley endorsed Mitt Romney before her state's primary in January but said she is not interested in serving as Romney's running mate, the news channel added.

However, both the Indian Americans are missing from the list of Roll Coll, a newspaper on the Capitol Hill.
