Indy Politics has learned that Indiana House Republicans are expected to choose Deputy Speaker Pro Tempore Matt Lehman to replace Jud McMillin as House Majority Leader.

McMillin abruptly resigned Tuesday in the wake of a sex scandal.

Lehman was elected to the House in 2008.   He currently serves as the Chairman of the House Insurance Committee and is a member of the Public Policy Committee, Courts and Criminal Code Committee and Government Regulatory Reform Committee.

Lehman currently represents District 79 in Northeast Indiana.

The vote to pick Lehman could come as early as next week,
