Indiana Governor’s Race: Who’s In Now That Pence is Out?

YLEH Indiana OLD

With Indiana Gov. Mike Pence being announced as Donald Trump’s running mate, many are now wondering who will take Pence’s place as the Republican nominee in the governor’s race.

Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb, Rep. Susan Brooks, and Rep. Todd Rokita all withdrew their names from the ballots so they could be eligible to enter the governor’s race, shortly after Trump made the announcement on Twitter.

We also know who’s not joining the race.

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke tweeted that he had no plans of entering the caucus.

From Twitter:

Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma also released a statement saying he would not seek the office.

On Thursday, former Gov. Mitch Daniels laid to rest rumors that he might run for governor again.

The candidate that does take Pence’s place on the ballot will face Democrat John Gregg in the November general election.
