(UNDATED) - Governor Mitch Daniels will not run for President in 2012.
Daniels made the announcement in a late night e-mail to supporters over the weekend.
Daniels wrote: "the answer is that I will not be a candidate,"
Daniels wrote. "What could have been a complicated decision was in the end very simple: on matters affecting us all, our family constitution gives a veto to the women's caucus, and there is no override provision.
Simply put, I find myself caught between two duties. I love my country; I love my family more."
Pundits now say Daniels' departure makes Mitt Romney the clear front-runner for the GOP nomination.
