The GOP chairman of the state’s most-populous county announced his resignation today on Twitter, effective December 15. At that time, there will be a caucus to select his replacement.
Walker was elected Republican Party Chair in December of 2010. After five years on the job, he has little to show for his efforts. Democrats are in control of every major Indianapolis City/County office, the City-County Council, the 7th District Congressional seat, and several key General Assembly seats.
When Walker came to power, Republicans still held the Mayor’s Office and City-County Council. Those went bye bye in 2011. He struggled to find candidates after that point. It’s been tough going.
I’ve never met Walker, but he’s been an occasional Twitter foe. The Republicans decide to place in the role. Certainly, it won’t be an easy job. It might be tough to find a chair.
