Rep. Kendell Kroeker, a republican from Evansville, has announced he is resigning his seat in the state legislature.

Kroeker is the owner of Casper Mountain Motorsports and he said in an email to his colleagues that his business will not allow him to take time off for this year's session.

The Republican Party will select 3 candidates to replace Kroeker in District 35, and one will be chosen from that group.
