Indiana Democrats' Wish Lawson Well as Secretary of State

Indiana Democratic Party Chair Dan Parker issued the following statement in response to Gov. Mitch Daniels’ appointment of GOP State Sen. Connie Lawson to complete the remainder of disgraced Secretary of State Charlie White’s term.
“We congratulate Senator Lawson on her appointment and wish her well in this position. We hope she will uphold the election code and work across the aisle to protect and expand the Hoosier electorate and not disenfranchise voters. Senator Lawson has a tough road ahead of her to restore integrity to an office stained by the record of the convicted felon who most recently occupied it. We hope, for all Hoosiers, that she is able to successfully rebuild.”
