Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels was contacted by the SBA List as well, but he declined to respond. Daniels drew fire from social conservatives last month for suggesting a “truce” where Republicans focus on economic issues instead of social issues.

An earlier version of this article misstated Mike Huckabee’s home state. He was governor of Arkansas. The story also implied that Mitt Romney was the current governor of Massachusetts; he is the former governor.
