Entry Description
Indianapolis—Governor Mike Pence today submitted his nomination of Eric Holcomb as Lieutenant Governor to Senate President Pro Tempore David Long and Speaker of the House of Representatives Brian Bosma.

“It is a special honor for me today to nominate Eric Holcomb as Indiana’s next lieutenant governor,” said Governor Pence. “Eric Holcomb is a man of great integrity, who brings a wealth of experience and knowledge about the state of Indiana to the Office of Lieutenant Governor, and I am grateful for his willingness to serve. As we build upon Indiana’s strong standing as a state that works, I look forward to working closely with our new lieutenant governor to improve the lives of Hoosiers and strengthen our growing Indiana economy.”

Once the Governor’s message and Holcomb’s affidavit, which affirms Holcomb’s compliance with constitutional eligibility requirements to become Lieutenant Governor, have been entered into the House and Senate record, the nomination will be confirmed through roll call votes on simple resolutions introduced by President Pro Tempore Long and Speaker Bosma in each chamber. The confirmation vote is expected to occur during the morning of Thursday, March 3rd. Following the vote, the Senate will send a message to the House notifying them of the confirmation vote, and the House will send a message to the Senate notifying them of the confirmation vote. Upon confirmation, the swearing-in ceremony is planned for March 3rd. 

A copy of the Governor’s message to President Pro Tempore Long and Speaker Bosma, as well as Holcomb’s affidavit, can be found attached.
