(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Indiana’s newest gubernatorial nominee has selected his running mate for the November election.

On Tuesday, Lieutenant Governor Eric Holcomb was selected by the Indiana Republican State Committee to replace Governor Mike Pence as the Republican gubernatorial nominee.

Pence gave up his re-election bid for governor after he was chosen as Donald Trump’s vice presidential nominee.

Holcomb announced Friday via Twitter that he has selected Suzanne Crouch to be his lieutenant governor nominee in the November election.

Crouch was appointed as Indiana’s 56th State Auditor in January of 2014. Before becoming auditor, Crouch served as the State Representative for House District 78 for nine years.

Holcomb will oppose Democratic candidate John Gregg in the November election.
