An online petition launched over the weekend is urging Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels to run for the Republican presidential nomination, reports DailyCaller.com
. More than 2,300 people have signed the “Run, Mitch, Run!” petition since it went online Saturday at 8 p.m., as of this writing.
asks viewers to “send a message to America’s most popular and effective governor: ‘Your country needs you, your party needs you, your moment is now. Seek the Republican nomination, win back the White House, and undo Barack Obama’s disastrous four years of statism, cronyism, debt, and decline.’”
Daniels announced in June that he would not seek the nomination. Speculation that he would change his mind was fueled by a Bill Kristol editorial
at WeeklyStandard.com that pictured Daniels announcing his decision to enter the race as he gives his official GOP response to the president’s State of the Union address on Tuesday.
The Daily Caller quotes an unnamed Daniels insider as saying the governor will not reconsider a presidential run.
