In the Indiana Attorney General's office election race, the state's Republican delegates are casting ballots as the time nears to select who will run for the position in November and the spotlight remains on incumbent Indiana Attorney Curtis Hill, who must convince delegates that he deserves a second term despite misconduct allegations that resulted in the suspension of his law license earlier this year.
Hill’s challengers include Todd Rokita, a former member of Congress and two-term Indiana secretary of state, Decatur County Prosecutor Nate Harter and Indianapolis lawyer John Westercamp. The GOP nominee will face the Democrat candidate — former Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel.
Back in 2018, Governor Eric Holcomb and other legislative leaders called for Hill to resign after four women said he groped them during a party. The attorney general received a month long suspension in May, ordered by the state Supreme Court, as a result. Hill has continued to deny any wrongdoing.
Holcomb declined to endorse any Republican candidate for attorney general. Hill served as Elkhart County prosecutor for 14 years before being elected attorney general in 2016.
