CLEVELAND — The race to be the new Republican nominee for governor is well underway, but most of the action is taking place far from Indiana at a Hilton Garden Inn near the Cleveland airport.

That’s where Indiana’s delegation to the Republican National Convention is staying this week, including most of the 22-member state Republican central committee that will select a candidate to replace Gov. Mike Pence on the November ballot.

All three of the top contenders to replace Pence — Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb and U.S. Reps. Susan Brooks and Todd Rokita — also are staying at the hotel. And with the committee scheduled to make a decision on July 26, the candidates can’t afford to wait to make their cases.

It probably didn't hurt Holcomb that he was chosen to speak at the RNC last night to call for Pence's nomination. There is little doubt that Pence would prefer him. Personally I'd rather see Susan Brooks get it; time for some new blood in the governor's office here.
