You Won’t See These Big GOP Names On The 2012 Presidential Ballot

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels announced his decision not to run for the 2012 Presidency on Sunday, leading the GOP to put increasing pressure on other possible candidates. Unfortunately for the Republicans, some of their biggest names insist they will not run.

“While I am flattered by everyone’s encouragement, my decision has not changed. I will not be a candidate for president in 2012,” former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said in a statement after Daniels’ announcement, according to a blog on CNN.com.

Representative Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) also said he would not run on Sunday, on NBC’s Meet the Press.

“I’m not going to get into all those hypotheticals. I am not running for president. I am not planning on running for president. If you are running for president, you’ve got to do a lot of things to line up a candidacy. I have not done any of those things,” Ryan said.

Texas Governor Rick Perry and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie also reiterated their respective decisions not to run.

A website has been set up to help voters keep track of declared and exploratory candidates.
