Romney endorsement bracket face-off: Mitch Daniels challenges George Pataki for the crown

The Ticket

Several hours after endorsing Mitt Romney for president recently, outgoing Indiana governor Mitch Daniels told the Indianapolis Star he disapproved of Romney's "slash-and-burn"-style of campaigning and said the former governor needed to make his campaign more constructive.

"You have to campaign to govern, not just to win," he said.

So many politicians have offered Romney this sort of backhanded endorsement that Yahoo News had them face off in an NCAA-style bracket. Former New York Gov. George Pataki won that tourney with his litany of Romney's shortcomings.

Now Daniels has issued a clear challenge for the crown.

Voting has closed. View the results.
