INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The 2014 election season will be much quieter, in part because much of the politicking is being dragged inside the party convention halls.
Wayne Seybold jumped in the pool last week as the first announced candidate for any of the three statewide offices on the 2014 ballot. The former Olympic skater and Marion mayor is getting an early boost from in his run for treasurer from a powerful list of Republican supporters.
Howard County Republican Chairman Craig Dunn notes that the support of party leadership often matters more in a convention battle because the small pool of delegates are party faithful. But a strong roster doesn't always guarantee a victory.
Dunn remembers Attorney General Greg Zoeller surprising top Republicans by winning the 2008 nomination through a strong grassroots campaign.
