EVANSVILLE, Ind. — With Holli Sullivan having left the statehouse to become the new Secretary of State, a caucus of Republicans convened on Monday to figure out who will be replacing Sullivan for the remainder of her term.

The person tasked with doing that is Tim O’Brien.

“I’m incredibly excited with the turnout,” O’Brien said. “I think it’s time for some new leadership and new ideas. I’m moving into a session that has only a few short weeks left but I do have priorities.”

His top priority is helping his district and the state get through the coronavirus pandemic. O’Brien, a 28-year-old Evansville realtor, is also heavily invested in infrastructure and also wants to help push for the final completion of I-69 both in Indiana and over the Ohio River into Kentucky.

O’Brien also says he plans to run for re-election when the time comes.
