Daniels says he’d have support in presidential run

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels says in an interview that he would have plenty of prominent Republican support and strong fundraising if he decided to run for president.

Daniels told Washington-based Politico he was being encouraged by many business and political figures to enter the 2012 race. But he noted it "would be safe to say" his wife, Cheri, is uneasy with a campaign.

Daniels told reporters at the Statehouse Thursday that no decision was "imminent" on a presidential run. When asked whether he might resign as governor to run for president, he said there were "too many ifs in that question for me to answer it."
