Indiana GOP chairman Kyle Hupfer, a former Republican National Committee general counsel who ran unsuccessfully for RNC co-chair earlier this year, plans to step down, POLITICO has learned.
Hupfer, who served six and a half years and four election cycles in the role of term-limited Governor Eric Holcomb, led the Indiana GOP to extraordinary heights, including securing more than 90 percent of all elected county offices nationwide. state, a new record, on top of a record 19 mayoral offices flipping to Republicans. He also chartered the Indiana Republican Diversity Leadership Series, which trains and equips Black and brown GOP leaders. He will leave his post after the GOP state central committee chooses his successor.
Hupfer’s exit comes as he has been widely rumored to join the gubernatorial campaign of former Indiana Secretary of Commerce Brad Chambers, who on Thursday entered a crowded 2024 GOP gubernatorial primary that includes Sen. Mike Braun, Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, Fort Wayne developer Eric Doden and former Attorney General Curtis Hill.
