August 13, 2016 GMT

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Republican U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita is back on Indiana’s November ballot after he withdrew his congressional candidacy last month in a bid to run for governor to replace Mike Pence.

Rokita was selected for the ballot during a Saturday caucus to fill the vacancy his withdrawal created in the 4th Congressional District. Precinct committeemen chose Rokita over three challengers, including the candidate he defeated in this year’s primaries.
