What some Republican Party leaders said about Ted Ogle, the GOP chairman for Bartholomew County and Indiana's 6th congressional district, who died Sunday night.
Gov. Mike Pence:
“Today, I’m sharing the sorrow of the Columbus community, as we fondly recall our dear friend, Ted Ogle. He was an extraordinary leader and more so, a true friend whom I had the privilege of knowing and working with for many years. His loyalty and dedication to the residents of Columbus and the 6th Congressional District will be deeply missed. My family and I send heartfelt condolences to Anne, Eric and Nadia and their family in their time of grief.”
U.S. Rep. Luke Messer, R-Ind.:
"Ted was a loving husband and father, a loyal friend, and highly effective public leader with a great passion for his country, his state and his community. Over the last decade, Ted's work touched the career of virtually every Hoosier Republican elected leader.
"On a personal note, I will be forever indebted to Ted Ogle. Ted was the first and most vocal supporter of my campaign for State Representative ten years ago, and as 6th District Chairman, played a central role in last year's campaign for U.S. Congress.
"Ted loved his family, loved his country & state, loved his friends and loved the Indiana Republican Party. His passing came way too soon. Ted Ogle will never be forgotten and he will be forever missed."
Indiana Republican Party Chairman Eric Holcomb:
"On behalf of The Indiana Republican State Party, and those who have long worked alongside Ted Ogle in his many capacities, we offer our deepest sympathies and condolences to his wife and family. Ted could always be counted on to work hard for the candidates and causes he passionately believed in each and every day. He was a stalwart champion of our Party and, above all, a friend to many. Ted’s citizenship will be missed at our State Committee table and at events around the state. We will always hear a "Here, Here!" in the air."
