INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The deadline for Gov. Mike Pence to withdraw from the governor’s race is fast approaching.

Although Donald Trump has postponed his VP announcement because of the terror attack in Nice, France, the governor has until noon Friday to withdraw.

According to the Indiana Secretary of State’s website, a candidate can withdraw at the Secretary of State’s Statehouse location of the Indiana Election Division at the Indiana Government Center.

The noon deadline also applies to candidates running for Congress, according to the Secretary of State.

At least two members of Indiana’s congressional delegation have been mentioned as possible Pence replacements, including Congresswoman Susan Brooks and Congressman Todd Rokita.

Other names that have been mentioned include Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb, House Speaker Brian Bosma, former Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke.
