Feb 15, 2021

INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana Republican Party Chairman Kyle Hupfer issued the following statement on Secretary of State Connie Lawson's announcement that she's retiring:

"Connie Lawson has been one of the most dedicated, effective, and admired Secretaries of State in Indiana history. For nearly a decade, Hoosiers have trusted her leadership and during her term Indiana has become a national role model in running safe and secure elections. Faced with unprecedented election obstacles in 2020, Secretary Lawson successfully navigated the challenges of the pandemic to ensure Hoosiers could safely exercise their right to vote and be confident in the outcomes. Connie Lawson will be missed in the Statehouse, but I know her contributions to our state will not end with her upcoming retirement.

Secretary Lawson certainly leaves big shoes to fill.  I’m confident that her replacement will be able to continue the legacy of election integrity that has been engrained here in Indiana. I look forward to working closely with Governor Holcomb as he makes his decision on this critical appointment."
