INDIANAPOLIS -- Republican front-runner Donald Trump's Indiana campaign officially got up and running this week.

Trump supporters – like one-time Democrat and now long-time Republican Jocelyn-Tandy Adande – joined Indiana staff at state Republican headquarters to launch his Hoosier campaign Wednesday.

His state chair is one-time Indiana Republican Party chairman Rex Early, who ran for governor back in 1996.

"You know, he's different, to say the least," Early said. "He's honest. And he's not in this for any monetary gain."

Early also had a warning for GOP leaders if they try to take the nomination away from Trump.

"It's going to wreck the Republican Party," he said. "In just about any game, the guy with the most points wins, and he's going in there with the most points and they're going to say that don't count? That's not going to sell, believe me."
