Email from Eric Holcombe, Indiana GOP chief, says Daniels is out for 2012–family reasons. Much sadness in the Hoosier state.
Holcombe quotes Daniels: “The interests and wishes of my family, is the most important consideration of all…If I have disappointed you, I will always be sorry…..If you feel that this was a non-courageous or unpatriotic decision, I understand and will not attempt to persuade you…I only hope that you will accept my sincerity in the judgment I reached…. Please stay in touch if you see ways in which an obscure Midwestern governor might make a constructive contribution….”
