Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, the current chairman of FreedomWorks, told CNN he though Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels should run for president: “Mitch is exactly the kind of candidate that our folks across the country are looking for.” While Armey isn’t quite ready to endorse for the 2012 nomination, he continued heaping on the praise.
He’s a serious guy, he’s no showhorse; he’s a workhorse. He keeps his eye on the ball. We really feel like we need a guy like him in this race and I’m trying to get him to understand that,” adds Armey. “He really fits the bill more than he realizes.”
Daniels has gotten himself into trouble with social conservatives, economic conservatives, and national security conservatives in the run-up to a possible Republican presidential bid.
