An Indiana Supreme Court ruling on Charlie White's residency paves the way for Governor Mitch Daniels to appoint a new Secretary of State.
The Indiana Supreme Court is hearing a case that will decide who becomes Secretary of State Charlie White's permanent successor.
The Indiana Attorney General's office says it will try to block a request from Democrats to install Vop Osili as Secretary of State.
How long Charlie White may fight his removal from office could be determined, in part, by a court hearing today.
If White is ruled ineligible, Democrat Vop Osili, the runner-up in the 2010 Secretary of State election, could take office.
The runner-up to Charlie White for Secretary of State and the Indiana Democratic Party Chair will testify at White's eligibility hearing.
A judge is setting a deadline to settle whether Secretary of State Charlie White is eligible to hold the office.
