Sullivan Leaves Political Post, Prepares for 2022 Election

Former legislator representing Warrick and Vanderburgh counties seeking full term as Secretary of State

Indiana’s top election official has stepped down from her position as the second-ranking officer in the state Republican Party. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:

Holli Sullivan took the step as she prepares to run for a full term as Indiana Secretary of State.

The former District 78 lawmaker has served as the Indiana GOP’s vice chair since 2019.

Party members reelected Sullivan to that position earlier this year, after Gov. Eric Holcomb appointed her to replace retiring Secretary of State Connie Lawson.

In a statement, Sullivan’s office said she’s decided to step down from the party position in order to “focus her attention on the duties of her new office.”

Sullivan plans to run for a full four-year term as Secretary of State in 2022. She faces at least two challengers for the Republican nomination.
