Republican officials in northeast Indiana have selected state Sen. Marlin Stutzman to replace former U.S. Rep. Mark Souder on the November ballot.

Fifteen Republicans sought the chance to replace Souder, who resigned last month after admitting an extramarital affair with a staffer.

Stutzman was picked at a caucus Saturday. He will be on the ballot in the 3rd Congressional District as the GOP candidate for both the general election and a special election to fill the remainder of Souder's current term.

Both elections will be Nov. 2.

Democrat Tom Hayhurst already has his name on the ballot for the general election. Democrats meet Thursday in Fort Wayne to choose a candidate for the special election. Most expect Hayhurst to win that caucus.
