GOP retains control of Indiana statewide offices

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Republican Charlie White overcame allegations of voter fraud to become Indiana's next chief election officer, and Republican incumbents held onto their jobs as auditor and treasurer.

White beat Democrat Vop Osili and Libertarian Mike Wherry in the race to replace term-limited Republican Todd Rokita.

Democrats had accused White of voter fraud after he voted in the May primary using his ex-wife's home as his address instead of the condo he bought in February. Officials are investigating. If White is charged and convicted of felony voter fraud, he could be removed from office.

Incumbent GOP treasurer Richard Mourdock beat Democrat Pete Buttigieg. Auditor Tim Berry beat Democrat Sam Locke and Libertarian Eric Knipe.


  • Mitch to grant Amensty? to save a fellon to oversee the state elections?
    The GOP suports unconvicted fellons to oversee the voting in Indiana. Is it no wonder that they have such a grip on the government. As they continue to hoodwink the people, let us hope that the courts puts White behind bars. The GOP thinks there is voter fraud behind every democratic precent caused by illegal voters. But they sure can put up and buy the election one of the biggest fellons and voter frauds ever to hit the state.
