Indiana Democratic Party Chairman Dan Parker issued the following statement in response to this morning's ruling by the Indiana Supreme Court in the Charlie White case:
“We’re obviously disappointed by today’s ruling, and we maintain our belief that Charlie White was an illegitimate candidate for this office, but we respect the court’s decision.
“It’s unfortunate that instead of having someone in that office who stood before Indiana voters for an election, Hoosiers are going to have a Secretary of State appointed by Gov. Mitch Daniels.
“We hope that person respects the integrity of the office and the elections process and will work with both parties to make sure that every Hoosier with the ability to vote can do so in a fair and open manner.”
