State Sen. John Crane (R) won’t run for the seat Rep. Todd Rokita (R) is vacating for a Senate bid. In his announcement, he said he was “greatly humbled by so many people I respect who have approached me over these past six months and asked me to consider running” but cited in family in his decision.

Crane: “[T]here is only one person in world who can be a father to my kids for such a time as this. The continued investment in my family and training up next generation leaders remains a high priority for this season of our lives.” (Greencastle Banner-Graphic)

Former Mike Pence adviser Diego Morales (R) and former state agency head Steve Braun (R) are already running for the GOP-leaning seat.
