KENDALLVILLE, Ind. —
Republicans have selected LaGrange attorney Susan Glick to finish the Indiana Senate term of Republican Marlin Stutzman, who was sworn in to a U.S. House seat this week.
State senator and Third Congressional District GOP Vice Chairman Jim Banks presided over the caucus Saturday in Kendallville. He says Glick was chosen on the fifth ballot from a field of five candidates.
Glick is a former LaGrange County Republican Party chairwoman and worked in the administration of Gov. Otis Bowen.
Banks says Glick should be sworn in within 30 days to complete Stutzman's legislative term, which runs through 2012. The district covers all of LaGrange and Noble counties and parts of DeKalb, Kosciusko and Steuben counties.
