The Indiana Republican Party has officially called for caucuses to fill the vacancies of two state local state representative seats.
State Chairman Kyle Hupfer says the caucuses will consist of eligible precinct committee members.
A caucus for House District 63, currently held by State Representative Mike Braun of Jasper, is scheduled for next Monday, October 30th at 6 p.m. ET in the Pfeffenweiler Room of Jasper’s City Hall. Braun announced his plans to resign from his seat last Friday effective November 1st in order to focus on his campaign for the republican nomination for the U.S. Senate.
District 63 includes parts of Dubois, Pike, Daviess and Martin counties. The House District 74 caucus, for a seat most recently held by former State Rep. Lloyd Arnold, is set for Monday, November 6th. That caucus will be held at Perry Central High School in Leopold at 6 p.m. Central Time.
Arnold was recently appointed to the position of Director of Law Enforcement with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. He resigned on October 22nd.
District 74 includes parts of Dubois, Spencer and Orange counties and all of Perry and Crawford counties.
Those picked at these caucuses will fulfill the remainder of the terms.
Individuals interested in running in either caucus should contact the State Party Secretary at email@example.com to ensure they file the proper forms to file before the deadline.
