Daniels subject of Holcomb book

It appears not just one book about Mitch Daniels' apparent governing acumen is enough.

Daniels wrote a book last year about the nation's rising debt load and it was littered with examples of things he had done in Indiana to run a more efficient state government.

Now it's Eric Holcomb's turn.

The head of the Indiana Republican Party has written a book called, "Leading the Revolution" about Daniels' time in office. The cover is a picture of the governor riding his motorcycle.

Pete Seat, spokesman for the Indiana GOP, tweeted a photo of the book Wednesday, and told Political Notebook it will be out in mid-June by IBJ Book Publishing.

"The gist is what other elected officials, business execs, etc can learn from Mitch's experiences as governor," he said.

Can't wait to read it!
