Rep. Todd Rokita (R-04) said Fri­day he’s con­sid­er­ing run­ning for re­tir­ing Sen. Dan Coats’ (R) seat in 2016. He would join a primary field that in­cludes former state Re­pub­lic­an Party Chair­man Eric Hol­comb (R), who an­nounced his bid last week. Rokita’s House col­leagues Reps. Todd Young (R-09) and Susan Brooks (R-05) are also con­sid­er­ing.

Rokita: “Over the last few days I heard from all kinds of friends across the state en­cour­aging me to con­sider run­ning for the U.S. Sen­ate. I want to talk with Hoo­siers about wheth­er my ex­per­i­ence as your Sec­ret­ary of State and now my lead­er­ship in the U.S. House can best be util­ized in the U.S. Sen­ate.” (In­side In­di­ana Busi­ness)
