Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels Will Be The Next President At Purdue University
Well, I guess we can take Mitch Daniels’ name off the board of potential running mates for Mitt Romney. From WISHTV:
Purdue University officials plan to vote on a candidate for the school’s next president this week – and WISH-TV has learned Gov. Mitch Daniels is the candidate in question.
The Purdue Board of Trustees will meet at 10 a.m. Thursday in Steward Center’s Loeb Playhouse to vote on a nominee to be the school’s 12th president. Several sources close to the proceedings tells WISH-TV that the nominee is Daniels. After the vote, the president-elect will be introduced, the school said in a news release.
Daniels’ office had no comment Tuesday afternoon.
The public is invited to the meeting and introduction. The vote and announcement will also be broadcast live onPurdue’s website .
A search committee chaired by Trustee Michael Berghoff, with representation from the faculty, staff, students and alumni, identified the candidate.
I’m guessing that vote is just a formality and Daniels will be the next President of Purdue University. Daniels was my first pick for the 2012 GOP Nomination, but he decided not to run. I wish him all the best at Purdue. Who knows? Maybe we’ll see him run for something in the future…
