Governor Daniels Talks Politics With NBC’s “Meet the Press”

Governor Mitch Daniels appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday and spoke about several political topics. Daniels said there are several good candidates in the Republican field, and, he said, “the more the merrier.”

“These are good people with a lot of character and a lot of them, I think, have the right skill set to be president,” Daniels said. “I would campaign for whichever one emerges from our process.”

Daniels gave advice for the next president, saying he hopes the Republican Party will use “the Indiana model.”

“We sure have found in Indiana that if you want to make big change, you need big majorities, you need big consensus,” he said. “You need to try and unify and reach out to people, and that’s what I hope our party would do.”

Daniels said he does not regret staying out of the race for president. He said “the race will do fine without him.”
