Governor Daniels Endorses Mitt Romney For President

Daniels will give the Republican response to President Obama's State of the Union speech.

Governor Mitch Daniels has endorsed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Daniels said on Fox News the former Massachusetts governor “has proved himself the best nominee we could put forward,” and says he has sent Romney a note offering to do anything he can to help.

Daniels had delayed throwing his support to any candidate after deciding against a run of his own. He said he wanted to “be a good host” for what he hoped would be a competitive Indiana primary. But the governor acknowledged on Fox that Romney has locked up the nomination, although Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul will appear with Romney on next month‘s ballot.

Daniels sidestepped a question about whether he would consider being Romney‘s running mate, saying it is not going to happen. Romney thanked Daniels for his support in a statement, saying Daniels‘ fiscal leadership in Indiana “should be an example to public officials across the country.”
