Election 2020 Indiana Attorney General

Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill 

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill’s bid for reelection was scuttled Friday as he lost the Republican nomination following a monthlong suspension of his law license over allegations that he groped a state lawmaker and three other women during a party.

Former U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita prevailed in mail-in voting by state convention delegates after a campaign among party activists that centered on whether the allegations against Hill left him vulnerable to defeat in the November election. Rokita defeated Hill with 52 percent of the vote in a third round of voting after two lesser-known candidates were eliminated in earlier rounds, state GOP Chairman Kyle Hupfer said.

It's about time he get's what he deserves.

Looks like we will have a Dem Atty General. No way will a conservative vote for a political hack like Rokita, a prominent party hack but a member of the good old boys club. I will vote for the Democrat, first one in 25 years. I am ashamed of the Republican Party, including Jackie Walorski who threw him under the bus and she will not get my vote either.
