TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The numbers are still being tallied, but the race has been called for Indiana House, District 41, and incumbent Republican Tim Brown remains the winner.

It was a race between three contenders for the District 41 seat. Brown faced Democratic challenger Howard Pollchik and Libertarian John Pickerill.

Brown assumed office in 1994 and was elected to chair the House Ways and Means Committee in 2012.

With more than 65,000 constituents, the district includes large portions of Boone and Montgomery counties and the southeastern portion of Tippecanoe County.

The race has been called and Brown declared winner. He will keep his seat in the Indiana General Assembly.

Brown was declared the winner early on Tuesday. As of Wednesday morning when final results were in, Brown ended up with 69 percent of the vote, Pollchik pulled in 20 percent and Pickerill got 11 percent.

Brown is celebrating his victory at the Eric Holcomb headquarters in Indianapolis Tuesday night. He spoke with News 18 by phone earlier and said, “Well it’s very honored that the citizens of House District 41 feel that we’re leading Indiana with job growth and business number one in the Midwest, so we wanna continue down that pathway where we expand opportunity for every citizen of Indiana.”
