Caucus Set to Choose Replacement for Senator Randy Head

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Republican Party Chairman Kyle Hupfer has officially called a caucus of eligible precinct committee members to fill the upcoming vacancy in the office of Senate District 18. The seat is currently held by Sen. Randy Head, whose resignation from the Indiana Senate will be effective August 12, 2019.

The caucus will be held at 6:30 p.m. ET, on Monday, September 9, 2019, at the Miami County 4-H Community Building, which is located at 1029 W. 200 N., Peru, IN 46970.

The individual selected at the September 9 caucus will fill the remainder of Sen. Randy Head's term. 

"Senator Head's service will be greatly missed both at the Statehouse and across Cass, Fulton, Miami, Carroll, Kosciusko and Marshall counties," said Hupfer. "He's been a leader on criminal justice issues -- especially when it comes to protecting children -- and attacking Indiana's drug epidemic."

Individuals interested in running in the caucus should contact the Indiana Republican Party Secretary at to ensure they file the proper forms prior to the deadline, which is 72 hours prior to the vote. The caucus will be open to credentialed media who pre-register to Holly Lawson at prior to 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, September 6.

A Facebook Live Stream will be available at for members of the public who wish to watch the caucus live. More details regarding caucus procedures and candidates will be released after the filing deadline.
