Lt. Governor Eric Holcomb is the Republican candidate for governor.
The Republican State Committee chose Holcomb over 4th District Congressman Todd Rokita, 5th District Congresswoman Susan Brooks and State Senator Jim Tomes, of Posey County.
The 22-member state committee convened at 10 a.m. Tuesday to fill the ballot vacancy created when Governor Mike Pence withdrew to be Donald Trump's running mate.
A little after 1 p.m., Republican party leaders announced Holcomb will top the statewide ticket.
