‘Truce’ Advocate Mitch Daniels Passes on Indiana Senate Race

January 31, 2023

According to reports today, former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels will not be entering the race to replace current Senator Mike Braun (R-Ind.). Daniels’ decision leaves Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) as the likely frontrunner for the seat.

Terry Schilling, president of American Principles Project (APP), released the following statement reacting to the news:

“Mitch Daniels’ decision not to run for Senate is great news for the Republican Party and the country. Daniels’ record as a sell-out Republican is notorious. In 2010, he infamously advocated for the GOP to call a ‘truce’ on social issues, a strategy which led Mitt Romney to decisive defeat two years afterward, as APP pointed out at the time.

“Now, over a decade later, it is abundantly clear that the surrender-first mentality of politicians like Daniels will only result in more losses for conservatives. We need leaders willing to stand up to the woke left on the toughest fights affecting our families, and thankfully more such leaders, like Rep. Jim Banks, are stepping forward every day. We wish Daniels a happy retirement from political life, and we encourage other Republicans who share his distaste for battling wokeism to also step aside in favor of conservative leaders who will do so.”
