Indiana GOP Sets Statewide Platform Committee Hearings, Announces Committee Co-Chairs

 Today, the Indiana Republican Party announced a series of public hearings to be held in southern, central, and northern Indiana for the purpose of soliciting input for its 2022 party platform. The platform, which will be drafted based on this input, will be ratified at the Indiana Republican Party State Convention, scheduled to be held on June 18, 2022, at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum in Indianapolis, Ind.

Jodi Smith, Indiana state director for the Susan B. Anthony List and president of the Indiana Federation of Republican Women, and Randall “Randy” Head, chief deputy prosecutor for Cass County and former Indiana State Senator for District 18, will serve as co-chairs of the platform committee.

“We are grateful to Jodi and Randy for agreeing to serve as co-chairs of our platform committee,” stated Kyle Hupfer, chairman of the Indiana Republican Party. “These two will lead a process that will give a voice to Hoosier Republicans in shaping a vision for our party and our state, and in the process, unite us under a set of principles that will continue to make life better for all Hoosiers.”

Hoosiers interested in providing input can reserve a slot to speak during a platform committee hearing or can submit written testimony. To reserve a spot or to submit testimony, please email platform@indiana.gop <mailto:platform@indiana.gop> .
