Daniels Sets April Presidential Bid Deadline

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels says he will decide on whether to run for president by the end of his state’s legislative session, which is scheduled by late April.

"I think the decision has to come at the end of this General Assembly session, if not before. No later than that," Daniels told Indiana news radio station WANE, The Hill reports .

He would face an uphill battle in what could be a crowded field with much more prominent names such as ex-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.

"In fairness to people from all over the place -- many of whom I've only read about before -- who like this idea [of Daniels running for president], I owe them some kind of an answer," Daniels said.
