Emigh to replace White as county GOP chair


Pete Emigh was selected Monday to take over as head of the Hamilton County Republican Party.

Emigh was selected by a caucus of Republican precinct committeemen and vice committeemen in Noblesville last night to be the Hamilton County GOP’s new chairman. He has served as the vice chairman for the past year and was endorsed by former chairman and new Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White, who resigned Dec. 31.

“I’m truly honored that the precinct committeemen and vice committeemen have entrusted me with this great responsibility,” Emigh said in a release. “I look forward to leading this great organization and working closely with our friends, supporters, elected officials, and volunteers over the next several years to build an even larger, stronger Republican Party in Hamilton County.”

Emigh, who lives in Westfield with his wife and three children, has been involved in the Republican Party in a variety of capacities throughout his life.
