No, when the president is running for office. They have the opportunity then to pick who they want as their running mate and eventual vice president. Much like right now with Obama and Biden, they stay within the same political party.

Each party nominates a team of candidates, one for president and one for vice-president and the same electors that choose the president also choose the vice-president.
