PERU – Cass County Councilwoman Stacey Donato was elected by a Republican caucus Monday night to fill the seat left vacant by Indiana Sen. Randy Head, who resigned last month.
The Indiana Republican Party on Monday night, Sept. 9, held the caucus at the Miami County Fairgrounds to replace the District 18 seat left empty by Head. District 18 serves Miami, Cass and Fulton counties, and portions of Carroll, Kosciusko and Marshall counties.
Head had endorsed Donato.
Donato faced five other candidates for the senate seat. She will complete Head’s term, which runs through the 2020 election.
