TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - After six years serving as Tippecanoe County Republican chairman, Bob Hicks announced he won't be running for re-election.
"It's been an enjoyable six years," Hicks said. "We've had Mike Pence here and Mitch Daniels when he was governor as our Lincoln Day speakers."
Hicks said while every job has its challenges, he's pleased with where the county currently stands.
"It's not a bitter campaign when the Republicans go against the Democrats because this is our community and we're just looking to have people who want to serve in the community," Hicks said.
Hicks said while reflecting on the past six years, there isn't much he'd want to see different happen for the county Republicans in the future.
But as far as his future goes, Hicks is looking forward to more free time.
"Family and things that I've kind of neglected over the years," Hicks explained. "You know, we've got an attic that needs to be cleaned and a basement that needs to be cleaned and just some of those things!"
Former Lafayette Mayor and Tippecanoe County Sheriff Dave Heath is running for the position.
A decision will be made Saturday.
