How Pence’s nomination affects the political landscape

A flurry of activity in Indianapolis as lawmakers react to the news that Gov. Mike Pence is officially Donald Trump’s running mate. Pence officially withdrew from the Indiana Governor’s race to run for Vice-President. He faced a deadline of noon on Friday to do so.

Other Republicans, including Congressman Todd Rokita, Congresswoman Susan Brooks and Lt.. Gov. Eric Holcomb have all filed paperwork, withdrawing from their respective campaigns, in bids to become the new Republican nominee for Governor. One name not on the list is Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma. His campaign released a statement that he will not seek the nomination.

The Indiana Republican Party’s Central Committee will select the new nominee within 30 days. That person will face Democrat John Gregg in November.
