Indiana Gov. Mike Pence will soon be the sixth Hoosier to serve as the vice president of the United States.

After a long campaign to win that role, Pence returned home to Indianapolis on Thursday Nov. 10. He spoke to a crowd of roughly 300 supporters at the Indianapolis International Airport. Many in the energized crowd waved red and blue pom-poms.

“Pray that we may find our way forward as a nation, that we may renew the American dream,” Pence says to the crowd. “Heal the divisions in our country and move forward to a more prosperous future.”

Holcomb Chooses State Auditor Crouch As Running Mate

Indiana Republican governor candidate Eric Holcomb says State Auditor Suzanne Crouch will be his running mate on the November ballot.

Holcomb, who in March was sworn in as lieutenant governor, was nominated this week by the Indiana Republican State Committee to run for governor after Pence accepted Donald Trump's invitation to run for U.S. Vice President.

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.

After months of assumption that he’d win the race easily, it came as little surprise Tuesday when Republican Congressman Mike Pence was elected the 50th governor in state history. 

Though the race appeared to narrow in recent weeks, Pence’s lead was too much to overcome for Democrat John Gregg.  Pence’s platform throughout the campaign was positive, rarely engaging in what were almost constant attacks from Gregg.
