Mitch Daniels Will Not Run for President

Mitch Daniels will not run for presidentIn an email to supporters, Mitch Daniels announced on Sunday that he will not be running for President.

The counsel and encouragement I received from important citizens like you caused me to think very deeply about becoming a national candidate,

Daniels continued,

In the end, I was able to resolve every competing consideration but one, but that, the interests and wishes of my family, is the most important consideration of all, If I have disappointed you, I will always be sorry.

Daniels’ decision not to run will impact the GOP field to a large degree as Daniels was considered a heavyweight in the group. Many believe that this announcement will push Republican voters into Mitt Romney‘s court, others say it would clearly benefit Tim Pawlenty.

Considering the strong showing of Herman Cain in the GOP debate, his rousing speech yesterday and the strong support that is growing for him, it would seem more likely that he might be the benefactor of Mitch’s choice to stay a Governor.
