By Travis Thayer
(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.
I have asked @Suzanne_Crouch to be my running mate. She brings a strong record, impressive resume & valuable experience.

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