Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has picked state Auditor Tim Berry as the new Indiana Republican Party chairman.

Berry will leave his job at the Statehouse to run the party full time and Pence campaign manager Kyle Robertson will take over as the state party's executive director.

He will replace Eric Holcomb, who resigned last month to become U.S. Sen. Dan Coats' state chief of staff.
