The Indiana Republican Party is set to hold a caucus Tuesday to determine who will fill the vacancy left by Mike Pence on the gubernatorial ballot. Congresswoman Susan Brooks (R-5), Congressman Todd Rokita (R-4), Lieutenant Governor Eric Holcomb and State Senator Jim Tomes (R-49) are all seeking the spot.
The caucus will convene at 10:00 a.m. and is expected to take 2-3 hours to pick a candidate. A press conference regarding the selection will be held upon adjournment. Party Chairman Jeff Cardwell and the new candidate are expected to speak.
The meeting comes after Governor Mike Pence withdrew his bid for re-election due to being selected as Donald Trump’s vice-presidential running mate. Pence has endorsed Holcomb for the candidacy.
