Well what do you know, looks like everyone’s fantasy presidential candidate Chris Christie has some nice words for actual potential candidate and Indiana governor Mitch Daniels. Could we see a 2012 ticket shaping up? Budget Hawks everywhere may need to hold back their squeals.
As top Republican fundraisers head to New Jersey in the hopes of persuading Chris Christie to leap into the presidential race, the New Jersey governor is heaping praise on Indiana’s chief executive.
In a radio interview on Monday morning, Christie said he’d like to see a governor in the Oval Office.
“He’s certainly somebody who I have enormous respect for and would give real consideration to supporting” Christie told talk radio host Chris Stigall, speaking of Mitch Daniels.
I know, I know. This obviously gives no indication of an impending ticket, but a guy can dream. One question, though: what does a Daniels/Christie candidacy do about foreign policy?
