INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - The Indiana GOP's trio of all-female statewide-elected officers each won re-election Tuesday.

Secretary of State Connie Lawson, State Auditor Tera Klutz and State Treasurer Kelly Mitchell will all remain in office come January. While each candidate had their own advertising, the state party also packaged the trio as a unit with Gov. Eric Holcomb endorsing all three in a single combined ad.

Lawson has been in office since 2012 and Mitchell since 2014, while Klutz was just appointed as auditor by Gov. Holcomb in January 2017 when her predecessor, Suzanne Crouch, resigned to become Holcomb's lieutenant governor.

With all three women staying in office and Mike Braun ousting Sen. Joe Donnelly, Republicans now hold every statewide elected office in Indiana.
