Mitch Daniels Backs Romney, Says He'll Unify America -- VIDEO

The Indiana governor predicts that Romney won't pick him as vice president.

April 18, 2012

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, once considered a possible "White Knight" for Republicans in this presidential cycle, on Wednesday described presumptive nominee Mitt Romney as someone who can bring Americans together and said he is supporting him.

“He’s already won our nomination; he earned it, he’s proven himself the best nominee we could put forward. I’m just happy to sign on and help him,” Daniels said on Fox News’ Fox & Friends.

 

The governor did not use the word “endorse” in the interview. But he said, “We need national leadership, and that’s why I’m for Mitt Romney, who will try to gather us together and quit trying to drive wedges between us.”

When Daniels was asked if he’d accept a position as Romney’s vice presidential pick, he responded: "It won’t happen, so we won’t take the audience’s time with it." He added, “I’d be glad to be a No. 22 or wherever I can fit in.”

Daniels apparently didn’t think much of his announcement, saying at the top of the interview, “It must be a slow news day if this has made the air.”
