INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana state Auditor Tim Berry has resigned that office
to begin fulltime as the new state Republican Party chairman.
The governorís office says Gov. Mike Pence accepted Berryís resignation and
will name his replacement on Thursday.
Berry became the state Republican chairman last month after being picked for
that position by Pence.
Berry is from Fort Wayne and was first elected state auditor in 2006 after
serving eight years as state treasurer. The new auditorís term will run
through the end of 2014, with that office up for election next year.
