John Gregg

Republican Congressman Mike Pence has named freshman state Rep. Sue Ellspermann, R-Ferdinand, as his running mate in the Indiana governor’s race.

The announcement was made Monday morning via e-mail to supporters and in Ellspermann’s hometown. Pence and Ellspermann plan to tour the state today and make stops in Evansville, Fort Wayne and Indianapolis. If Pence wins in the fall, Ellspermann would become just the third female lieutenant governor in Indiana history.

“Sue Ellspermann has the integrity, business background and experience in state government that will make her a great lieutenant governor. She will be a tremendous asset as we work to bring more jobs to Indiana,” said Pence in a message to supporters.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Gregg told media outlets he’ll choose a running mate before the filing deadline on June 8.
