(INDIANAPOLIS) – Indiana Republican Party Chairman Kyle Hupfer was unanimously elected to serve on the Republican National Committee (RNC) Budget Committee today during a meeting of the RNC’s Midwest Caucus.
Nominated during the meeting by Indiana Republican National Committeeman John Hammond, Hupfer will be the new Midwest representative on the budget committee. Hupfer will be responsible for helping manage the national Republican Party’s budget going into the 2020 election cycle, which will include budget planning for the 2020 Republican National Convention, battleground races and the presidential election.
“Indiana is known as a leader in sound budgeting and strong balance sheets. I look forward to applying these Hoosier principles I’ve built over my career to our national party’s budget going into a critical election year,” said Hupfer. “In 2020, with record fundraising and smart fiscal management in place, I know that the RNC will help lead the way to another historic election for President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.”
In addition to his new role on the RNC Budget Committee, Hupfer will continue to serve as chairman of the Indiana Republican Party, as well as the treasurer of Eric Holcomb for Indiana campaign.
Chairman Kyle Hupfer brings a strong record of financial experience to his new role on the RNC Budget Committee:
Hupfer was a member of former Governor Mitch Daniels’ cabinet, helping financially turn around the Department of Natural Resources as the agency’s director.
Prior to serving as chairman of the Indiana Republican Party, Hupfer served on the party’s state committee. Elected chairman of the party in 2017, Hupfer has helped lead the Indiana Republican Party to record fundraising years, ending 2018 with $930,000 in the bank, outpacing the previous year’s record by more than $100,000.
“I’m excited to take on this new challenge, and to continue to show how Hoosiers are leading the way on the national stage,” said Hupfer.
