Daniels aides stay on for Pence administration

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov.-elect Mike Pence says some of Gov. Mitch Daniels top aides will stay on to help him in the new administration.

Pence announced Wednesday that Rob Wynkoop will stay on as the head of the Department of Administration and Mike Alley would continue working to fix the embattled revenue department. Anita Samuel will be promoted from general counsel at the state's personnel department to its secretary.

The three join a handful of top appointments Pence has made in the last few weeks as he builds his new team.

Pence also announced he'll do a "thank you" tour of the state Thursday and Friday with stops in South Bend, Fort Wayne, Evansville and Terre Haute. He plans to speak to the Indiana Chamber of Commerce Thursday.
