The obvious point is made that, having a record he must defend, Gov. Daniels can't just rely on his RV-tour gimmick during his next campaign:

But Republicans say for every person angry about one of those issues is a person -- or people -- who benefited.
The governor's problem is that he has done just what he said he would do -- shake the state up. That upsets people. Angry voters tend to stay that way, and many of the benefits from Daniels' changes are either down the road (toll road-funded construction projects) or not immediately obvious (DST).
The article also says that "the 2008 governor's race may come down to which side does best at getting their message out." Gee, do ya think?
