INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb has chosen his running mate as he seeks the governor’s office.

Holcomb announced Friday that he has asked State Auditor Suzanne Crouch to run on his ticket in the gubernatorial race.

The Republican Party chose Holcomb to replace Gov. Mike Pence on the ticket after Pence accepted the nomination as Donald Trump’s running mate in the presidential race. The decision meant Pence couldn’t run for reelection as governor.

Crouch has served as state auditor since January 2014. She has previously served as a state representative, Vanderburgh county commissioner and Vanderburgh county auditor. Holcomb said Crouch “brings an impressive resume and valuable experience” to the Republican ticket. Crouch was born in Evansville and is a graduate of Purdue University.
