INDIANAPOLIS – Mike Schmuhl, a 38-year-old venture capitalist who formerly ran Pete Buttigieg’s mayoral and presidential campaigns, is the new chair of the Indiana Democratic Party.
Party members elected Schmuhl to the position Saturday.
Schmuhl will succeed John Zody, who chose not to run for a third term.
“Democrats across our state are ready for a fresh vision supported by strategic planning, long-term investment, grassroots organizing, and a clear message that offers all Hoosiers a better life, regardless of where they live,” Schmuhl said in a press release. “I’m ready to get to work and I look forward to helping elect great Democrats up and down the ballot as we chart a new course.”
Vicechair is Marion County Clerk Myla Eldridge.
