Indiana Republicans Fill Fall Ticket
The Indiana Republican Party has filled open spaces on its ticket for the November election. During its state convention in Indianapolis, the party nominated candidates for superintendent of public instruction, attorney general and lieutenant governor.
Eric Holcomb will be the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor. He took over the job in March, succeeding Sue Ellspermann, who has since been named president of Ivy Tech Community College.
The party has selected Elkhart County Prosecutor Curtis Hill as its nominee for attorney general, and Yorktown Community Schools Superintendent Jennifer McCormick as the nominee for superintendent of public instruction.
Governor Mike Pence issued the following statement on the nominations:
"Congratulations to Dr. Jennifer McCormick on her nomination for Superintendent of Public Instruction. Dr. McCormick is uniquely qualified as a superintendent with years of experience in education in our state.” said Governor Mike Pence.
We also congratulate Curtis Hill on his nomination for Attorney General. Prosecutor Hill has a proven track record as an effective, common sense prosecutor in Elkhart County. We are excited to welcome both Dr. McCormick and Prosecutor Hill to Indiana’s winning Republican team and look forward to leaning on their expertise to make Indiana’s future brighter for all Hoosiers."
