To get a call this early, Mitch Daniels has clearly won a comfortable victory in what might be a tough night for Republicans (or might not). Could he end up on a future national ticket?
He definitely has a good story in Indiana -- conservative credentials, but also non-partisan accomplishments. Potential problems: He's not a natural politician and he is a former Bush administration official.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
