Daniels To Address CPAC Conference
From Politico ~ Indiana Gov Mitch Daniels will attend CPAC, speaking to the annual conservative confab on Feb 11th, a source tells POLITICO.
It's another sign that Daniels is thinking seriously about a White House bid. He has previously eschewed the Republican cattle call circuit, insisting that he's entirely focused on his day job.
The CPAC appearance offers Daniels a high-profile platform to address his comments last year that there ought to be a truce on cultural issues to address the country's pressing fiscal problems. He has since sought to clarify his assessment, but the remarks have raised concerns among the GOP's social conservative wing.
The Hoosier was in Washington yesterday for some get-to-know-you sessions with reporters and bloggers and to receive an fiscal responsibilty award.
