Former Angie's List CEO seeks to 'Draft Mitch'

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The head of former Gov. Mitch Daniels' successful 2004 campaign has begun an effort to draft him to again seek the office if Donald Trump selects Mike Pence to be his running mate.

Former Angie's List CEO Bill Oesterle has created a new website and hopes to build support for a "Draft Mitch" movement.

Oesterle spokeswoman Megan Robertson says Daniels, now Purdue University's president, hasn't ruled out running for the office if Gov. Pence drops his re-election bid. She says the group is "just expressing how happy we would be if the answer is 'Yes.'"

Term limits barred Daniels from seeking a third consecutive term. But the Republican could run again now that he's out of office.

A Purdue spokesman says Daniels had no comment on the draft movement.
