Republican U.S. Reps. Susan Brooks and Todd Rokita are back on the ballot to defend their seats in the upcoming election.

When Gov. Mike Pence dropped out of the gubernatorial race to be presidential nominee Donald Trump’s running mate, he left an opening on the Republican ticket. Both Brooks, who represents the 5th District, and Rokita, who represents the 4th District, withdrew from their respective races last month in an effort to run, instead, for governor. However, a committee ended up selecting Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb for Pence’s replacement.

The Indiana Republican Party decided to put Brooks and Rokita back in their original races during caucuses Saturday.


“Our November ticket continues to grow stronger, and the Republican Party will continue to fight to Make America Great Again,” Indiana Republican Party Chairman Jeff Cardwell said in a statement.
