Now that 9th District Congressman Todd Young has decided to run for the U.S. Senate, the race to replace him is beginning to take shape.
At least three Indiana lawmakers are expected to enter into the race in the next week or so.
Republican State Senator Brent Waltz is expected to announce on Thursday he is running. Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller will likely announce next week that he is running. And State Senator Erin Houchin is also expected to get in soon.
Also looking at getting in the race are State Representative Peggy Mayfield and State Senator Rodric Bray.
The 9th District consists of 15 counties in Southern Indiana.
