45th District Democrats have decided who will take over Kreg Battles.
Battles recently resigned from the Indiana House last month and won’t run for re-election.
Precinct officials selected Bionca Gambill as Battle's replacement.
Gambill was the only candidate formally seeking the empty seat after several others bowed out.
Gambill will be sworn into office on Tuesday and then immediately start campaigning against Republican Bruce Borders in preparation for the fall general election.
