Possible Charlie White Successors

Speculation on who Gov. Mitch Daniels might appoint as Secretary of State should Charlie White voluntarily resign or be forced from office under a plea bargain agreement or guilty verdict has commenced. Ed Feigenbaum tosses out these names in the latest edition of the Indiana Daily Insight:

As was the case when rumors were flying about the Governor trying to dissuade White from assuming, names are floating for a potential White replacement, including Sens. Connie Lawson (R) and Jim Banks (R); former Reps. Luke Messer (R), Dan Dumezich (R), Jackie Walorski (R), and David Yount (R); former Department of Natural Resources director Kyle Hupfer; Alcohol and Tobacco Commission Chair Mark Massa; and mayors Jon Costas (R) of Valparaiso and Wayne Seybold (R) of Marion. Front-runner: Messer if he wants it.
Any other names?

Messer was always a willing sponsor of Rokita's proposed legislation. I'd look for him to be high on the list.

Messer already said he wasn't interested. He is working on ed-reform. So you can take him off the list.

I'm assuming Gilroy would have to take a pay cut to go back to a job she didn't enjoy all that much when she had it. I would be surprised if she was interested in it.
