INDIANAPOLIS – Former Indiana Republican Party chairman Eric Holcomb is dropping out of the race for the U.S. Senate.

A Secretary of State official said Holcomb filed paperwork to withdraw his name from the ballot Monday. A representative with Holcomb’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for a comment.

With Holcomb out of the race, three candidates are left vying for the seat being vacated by retiring U.S. Sen. Dan Coats. U.S. Rep. Todd Young and U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman have both filed to run as a Republicans. So far, former U.S. Rep. Baron Hill is the only candidate running as a Democrat.
