Key 2008 Iowa Romney Player Praising Daniels

From CNN’s Peter Hamby:

Doug Gross, an influential Iowa Republican who chaired Mitt Romney’s 2008 presidential effort in the Hawkeye State and is strongly considering backing Daniels if he seeks the White House, described the Indiana governor as “perhaps the most effective Republican leader we have seen in the last decade.”

“Sometimes people that actually get things done are accused of compromising,” Gross told CNN. “Some elements of the Republican Party would rather be to the right than effective. He gets accused of being a moderate just because he gets things done.”
