(INDIANAPOLIS) - Former Indiana and national Democratic Party leader Gordon St. Angelo has died at age 84, Tuesday at an Indianapolis Hospital.

St. Angelo started a decade as state Democratic chairman in 1964 after running Roger Branigin's successful campaign for governor. He also played major campaign roles for Sens. Birch Bayh and Vance Hartke.

He was the party's deputy national chairman in 1968 and narrowly lost a bid for national chairman in 1973.

St. Angelo ran a clothing store in his hometown Huntingburg when he became active in John Kennedy's 1960 presidential campaign.

He later was an executive for the Friedman Foundation and the Lilly Endowment.
