Governor Daniels Not Running For President In 2012

Last updated on Monday, May 23, 2011

(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.
