Caucus picks new Indiana House memberJune 6, 2019
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — A former gubernatorial aide has been picked to replace a retiring member of the Indiana House.
Republican precinct committee members voted in a caucus Tuesday night for Dollyne Sherman to fill the seat given up by longtime Rep. David Frizzell. Sherman will represent District 93 that covers part of Indianapolis’ south side and neighboring Johnson County.
Sherman worked for Republican Govs. Robert Orr and Mitch Daniels, along with GOP U.S. Rep. Susan Brooks. She defeated six other candidates to complete Frizzell’s term, which runs until the November 2020 election.
Frizzell was first elected to the House in 1992. He announced in April he was resigning midterm to spend more time with his ill wife.
Republicans hold a commanding 67-33 House majority.
