Indiana’s Political Landscape Without Mitch Daniels “Hard to Get Used To”

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels has accepted the presidency of Purdue University, starting when his term is over in January. The Indianapolis Star's Mary Beth Schneider said the move had been rumored for a while, but the  idea of Mitch Daniels not being involved in partisan politics is hard for many to imagine. “The thought of the Indiana Republican landscape without Mitch Daniels as an active player is hard to get used to,” she says, “and I think it's hard for him to get used to too.” Schneider joined us on Friday's Byline to talk about the move's possible impact on Indiana politics.
