The Indiana Republican Party is planning a caucus to elect a new state senator from District 36



Indianapolis, Indiana – A caucus will be held by Indiana Republican Party officials to fill the vacant seat left by the recent passing of State Senator Jack Sandlin.

The Indiana GOP released a news release stating that the caucus will take place on October 18 at 7 p.m. at the Atrium Banquet and Conference Center, which is situated at 3143 E. Thompson Rd. Eligible members of precinct committees will form the caucus to replace Sandlin as the state senator for District 36 until 2024.

According to earlier reports, Sandlin served as a state senator for the south side of Indianapolis since his election in 2016 and passed away in the middle of September. In 2010, Sandlin, who had previously worked as a police officer in Southport and Indianapolis, was elected to the Indianapolis City-County Council.

According to the press release, anyone interested in running in the caucus should get in touch with the Indiana Republican Party secretary to make sure they submit the required paperwork by the deadline, which is 72 hours before the vote.

Officials announced that on October 18, the public can watch the caucus proceedings live through a livestream.
