U.S. Representatives Todd Rokita and Susan Brooks will seek to officially return to their congressional races Saturday.

Precinct committeemen in the 4th and 5th districts will meet to fill ballot vacancies created when Brooks and Rokita sought to replace Mike Pence on the GOP's gubernatorial ballot.

Immediately after Eric Holcomb became the nominee for governor, Rokita and Brooks announced their intentions to return to their reelection campaigns.

Both will face at least one opponent Saturday, including the candidates each of them beat in May's primary. However, Brooks and Rokita are widely expected to win tomorrow's caucuses.
