Ind. Gov Opens Door to 2012 GOP Presidential Run

Monday, 22 Feb 2010 06:07 PM


Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels says he's keeping the door open to a possible 2012 presidential run — but just a crack.

The Republican told The Washington Post over the weekend that he's spoken with former President George W. Bush and others in recent months and has agreed to keep an open mind about the idea.

But the two-term governor told The Journal-Gazette of Fort Wayne on Monday that his focus is on Indiana for the next 18 months.

He says he'd be willing to listen then if Republicans aren't happy with their field but that it would likely be too late to launch a presidential bid.

He says he's trying to recruit other people for a White House run.
