INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels is heading on a three-day trip with appearances in New York, Baltimore and Washington while he gets closer to making a decision about entering the Republican presidential race.
The governor's office says Daniels will receive a leadership in government award from Columbia University's business school during a Monday evening ceremony in New York. He'll then travel to Baltimore to receive an award Tuesday from the Harbour League, a group that promotes conservative government policies.
Daniels will wrap up his trip Wednesday in Washington, where he will give a speech about educational change at the conservative American Enterprise Institute think tank.
In another event, he'll receive a public service award from The Arab American Institute. The governor's paternal grandparents were from Syria.
