INDIANA (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels says, 'it's not too late to jump in the Republican Presidential Nominating contest, in fact a late start is a blessing.'

Those words came from Daniels in a speech on Capitol Hill Wednesday promoting Indiana’s changes to the education system.

Daniels has made it clear he would not announce his presidential plans until after the end of the legislative session, which was Friday.

The latest Quinnipiac Poll shows Daniels in fifth place among other likely GOP contenders, behind Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump.

Daniels says, “Unless you're a political professional or running a Bed and Breakfast in New Hampshire, it's a darn good thing that we'll have a campaign measured in months and not, a nomination campaign measured in months and not years.”

Daniels is expected to make a decision very soon.
