By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Gov. Eric J. Holcomb has appointed a fellow former top aide to then-Sen. Dan Coats to chair the Indiana Gaming Commission.
Holcomb on Friday named Indianapolis attorney Michael McMains to the position, effective April 5.
McMains was an aide to then-Sen. Coats from 2010 to 2017, first as his state director and then as senior counsel. Holcomb is a former state chief of staff to Coats.
Coats is currently director of national intelligence for President Donald Trump.
Holcomb says he got to know McMains when he was Coats’ state director. The governor says he’s “thoughtful, hard-working and has great integrity.”
The Gaming Commission regulates Indiana casinos.
McMains will replace Cris Johnston, who resigned from chairing the commission to become Holcomb’s deputy chief of staff.
