INDIANAPOLIS -- Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb, the Republican nominee for governor of Indiana, has chosen a running mate for the upcoming election.

Suzanne Crouch, currently the state auditor, will run for Lt. Governor with Holcomb for November's election.

“Our state auditor, Suzanne Crouch, brings to our ticket a strong record, an impressive resume and valuable experience in four separate and important roles in local and state government, at both the legislative and executive levels,” Holcomb said. “She is full of energy and passion and is a natural at barnstorming the state. She is a relentless campaigner, a great fundraiser and will be the perfect governing partner if we are honored to serve as Governor and Lt. Governor.”

Holcomb was selected to replace Gov. Mike Pence on the ticket on Tuesday. The decision was between Holcomb and State Reps. Susan Brooks and Todd Rokita.
