Daniels: Romney Needs To Be More Than An Anti-Obama

Asked Sunday whether Mitt Romney will “need to offer a bold, affirmative agenda” for reform in order to win, Gov. Mitch Daniels (R-IN) replied, “Yes, absolutely.”

“The American people will rightly demand to know something more than he’s not President Obama,” Daniels said on Fox News Sunday. “He better have an affirmative, constructive message.”

Added the Romney surrogate: “It would be, I think, a huge mistake for Republicans to misread Wisconsin as some kind of great harbinger [for November]. I don’t see it that way at all.”
