Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels is recommending his Deputy Chief of Staff, Eric Holcomb, to become the next Indiana Republican Party Chairman.  Daniels sent a letter to outgoing Indiana Republican Party Chairman Murray Clark and the Republican State Committee, endorsing Eric Holcomb to lead the state party.  Holcomb has served as Daniels’ campaign manager and is now his Deputy Chief of Staff.

“He’s the things you’d expect him to be.  He’s a very tireless and effective organizer of people and a political mechanic as he’s proven in the campaigns we’ve had,”  said Daniels.

Clark announced last week he would step down from the jobs he’s held since 2006 at the end of the year.  The Indiana Republican State Central Committee will meet January third to elect a new state chairman.  While the committee officially elects a chairman, the choice is really made by the governor.
