INDIANAPOLIS – Earlier today, the Indiana Republican State Central Committee unanimously reelected Kyle Hupfer to a second 4-year term as state party chairman.
Indiana Secretary of State Holli Sullivan was elected vice chairwoman with Chuck Williams and Mary Martin being elected treasurer and secretary, respectively. Sullivan and Williams were re-elected to their positions while Martin is new to the leadership team.
“I’m excited to begin a second term as party chairman and honored to have the trust of Governor Holcomb and the Republican State Committee to continue serving in this role. The mission in 2022 of protecting our supermajorities in the state legislature, reelecting Senator Todd Young and our US House delegation, and electing our Republican slate of statewide candidates begins now. I’m excited to work with Holli, Chuck, Mary, and the rest of the Republican team to keep our winning streak going.”
Under Chairman Hupfer’s leadership, the Indiana Republican Party has smashed party fundraising records and achieved a level of electoral success unprecedented by a political organization in state history. Indiana Republicans hold every statewide elected office, supermajorities in both houses of the Indiana General Assembly, both U.S. Senate seats, seven of nine U.S. House seats, 71 mayoral offices, and 88 percent of all elected county offices in the state.
Hupfer was also the campaign manager of Governor Holcomb’s 2020 reelection effort that saw the governor earn the most votes ever cast for a gubernatorial candidate in Indiana history. Last month, he was appointed general counsel of the Republican National Committee by RNC Chairwoman Rona McDaniel.
One of Chairman Hupfer’s major initiatives as party chairman is growing the Indiana Republican Party by building relationships with communities that have historically not voted Republican. To help achieve this goal, Hupfer developed the Indiana Republican Diversity Leadership Series, a seminar and leadership training program that will provide the resources needed to increase the engagement of minority Republican leaders in Indiana.
“We’ve seen enormous levels of Republican success in Indiana at every level, but we still have work to do. The worst thing we can do is be complacent. There are still areas where Indiana Republicans can expand the map and I’m looking forward to running up the score in 2022 and 2024,” Hupfer added.
