Daniels: No word on White House run until April

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Republican Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels says politicians thinking about the next election in 2012 should "stifle" themselves for a while.

Daniels says there's plenty of work to be done in the legislative session and says he won't make any comments about a possible White House bid until at least April when the session ends.

Reporters asked Daniels Thursday about Indiana Republican Rep. Mike Pence, who is stepping down from a House leadership position as he considers his future. Pence has been named as a possible presidential or gubernatorial candidate in 2012, and Daniels says he's a great guy.

But Daniels is asking anyone thinking of running for office in 2012 to be quiet it about it for the next several months and focus on current duties.

  • Mitch should shut up himself
    Mich should "stifle" himself Period. What a looser and poor excuse for an man in office. Full of corruption, kickbacks, and special sweetheart deals on the backs of the citizens--mostly the elderly, children, sick and the unemployed.
  • Hey Mitch
    If you want to think about being President start with writing a check to the Fair Finance trustee for the hundreds of thousands in what you KNOW is cash stolen from the life savings of thousands of elderly Ohio victims.

    You will never be President if you don't. We promise.

  1. Why should citizens rates increase forever to basically reduce Dukes cost to operate in the future? They will have no meter readers, no connect/disconnect personnel and will need fewer lineman to handle the same number of customers. Add to that the ability to replace customer service by giving detailed information electronically. Why do we have to subsidize the cost cutting measures of a Public Utility?

  2. In response to Sassafras, I have to ask if you relocated directly from Bloomington to Carmel? First, as you point out, Carmel is 48 square miles. Do you think it’s possible that some areas are more densely developed than others? That might explain traffic density in some places while others are pretty free moving. Second, your comment “have you ever been to Chicago--or just about any city outside of Indiana?” belies your bias. I don’t know, Sassafras, have you never been to Nashville, Columbus, OH, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Kansas City, Denver, Phoenix? They’re not a lot different in density than Indy. One more thing…I understand these comment sections are for expressing opinions, so those of us just looking for facts have to be patient, but you mention “low-density” Indy. How many cities in the US comprise 400 square miles with about 10% of that still being agricultural? Those facts certainly can impact the statistics.

  3. With all the past shady actions of Duke with utility regulators, one wonders do they really need such a huge amount? Concerned regulators not protecting ratepayers from the aggressive Duke monolith.

  4. I thought that had to be the way it was but had to ask because I wasn't sure. Thanks Again!

  5. I could be wrong, but I don't think Butler views the new dorm as mere replacements for Schwitzer and or Ross.
