Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels – who has been mentioned as a potential GOP 2012 presidential candidate – suggests House Republicans should avoid attaching legislative riders to spending bills, Politico reports.

House Republicans are headed for a showdown with Senate Democrats over the inclusion in budget bills of controversial riders, on issues like reproductive health, the environment, and healthcare reform.
