Dems want their candidate as Ind. elections chief
AP NewsBreak: Indiana Democrats hope to have their candidate in elections office next week
By The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) ' Indiana Democrats say they will try next week to have their losing candidate installed as the state's elections chief after a jury found Secretary of State Charlie White guilty of six felony voter fraud-related charges, disqualifying him from office.

Jurors returned a verdict about 2 a.m. Saturday. Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels then appointed White's chief deputy, Jerry Bonnet, as interim secretary of state.

Chairman Dan Parker tells The Associated Press that state Democrats will seek to have their 2010 candidate Vop Osili (OH' sill ee ) certified as secretary of state next week. A civil judge has ordered the state to declare Osili the winner, saying White was ineligible.

The appointment would ordinarily be up to the Republican governor. The fight could reach the state Supreme Court.
