INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody released the following statement after the Democratic Party State Central Committee voted to elect him to a second four-year term as Chairman.

“I am humbled and honored to have been re-elected this afternoon and am excited to continue to work with our State Central Committee to move our Party and Indiana forward. I want to thank my opponents for their ideas and thoughts during this race. We learned hard lessons in 2016 but the aftermath has provided us with an enormous opportunity. To capitalize on this opportunity, we must be proactive. To win, we must develop a sustainable statewide organization, focus on outreach, develop a talent pipeline and carry a carefully-crafted message based around the values that makes us Democrats. Hoosier Democrats are ready. I’m ready to go to work. This is our way forward, together.”
