Daniels, who just endorsed Romney, spoke to Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.”
When Wallace asked him point-blank if he would accept an offer to run as veep with Romney, the presumptive GOP nominee, Daniels said:
“You will remember what William F. Buckley said when he ran for mayor of New York and [was] asked what he would do if he won. He said, ‘Demand a recount.’ ”
Daniels added: “I think I would demand reconsideration and send Mr. Romney a list of [other] people.”
He refused to say whom Romney should pick, remarking: “I’ve seen a lot of names and I like ’em all.”
Rubio, appearing Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” was equivocal about whether he’d take the No. 2 spot, but saluted former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush as a “fantastic choice” for Romney.
When host Candy Crowley told Rubio that people talked about him as a possible president, he had a rapid response. “Maybe they mean of a condominium association,” he quipped. “You know, there’s real power there.”
