INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels is endorsing Mitt Romney for the Republican presidential nomination that he has all but sewn up.
The Romney campaign announced the support from Daniels on Wednesday. That step that comes after Daniels declined for months to publicly support any of the Republican candidates, saying he wanted to stay neutral if Indiana's May primary ended up being contested.
The endorsement statement from Daniels echoed his message raising concerns about the federal debt that drew him attention as a possible GOP presidential candidate before he bowed out last year.
Daniels says Romney has proven that he understands the nation's challenges and "is prepared to summon Americans to the changes that will restore the American Dream."
