Here’s a Key Indicator on Mitch Daniels’s 2012 Decision
Indiana governor Mitch Daniels is reportedly thinking about running for president in 2012. But he says that he’s focused on helping Republicans win back the Indiana state legislature in 2010. Daniels has told those interested in supporting him for higher office that there are several areas — education being one — he wants to address, but that he needs a like-minded legislature to do so. “He’s not looking past 2010, but those of us who support him think there is a silver lining in that, especially if by helping him get that majority we make his decision on 2012 easier. We think the country is going to need him, and an even stronger record in Indiana only helps that cause,” says a would-be political supporter.
