Barbour: 2012 decision will be independent of other candidates

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) said Sunday he’ll make his decision on wether to run for president in April, and that decision wouldn’t depend on which candidates jump into the race in the meanwhile.

Barbour, the former Republican Governors Association (RGA) chairman who’s considering running, wouldn’t outline his criteria for deciding whether or not to run, only to say that it was mostly a family decision.

He reiterated that the decision would come in April, at the end of his state legislature’s session.
