INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — There’s a new book out that spells out the decision making process that Mitch Daniels went through as he considered a run for President in 2012.
“Run, Mitch, Run” was written by Don Cogman, a longtime friend of the former Indiana governor.
Cogman was one of eight people who served as advisers to Daniels as he looked at a bid for the GOP nomination. He says family concerns kept Daniels from running and, possible, winning.
“He really did have a chance,” said Cogman. “I’m not sure people in Indiana, maybe, understood the national momentum that was happening at the time, but he really did have an opportunity and, you know, we would have liked to have seen how that would’ve come out.”
Cogman hopes the book may serve as a guide for potential 2016 candidates.
