INDIANAPOLIS (AP/WEHT) — The Indiana Republican Party’s in-person state convention has been called off because of the coronavirus outbreak, with mail-in voting by delegates to decide the GOP’s contentious nomination for state attorney general.
Indiana Democrats announced a month ago they were switching to a virtual convention, but state GOP Chairman Kyle Hupfer said party leaders waited as long as they could before deciding on a virtual convention on June 18.
At least two Republicans are challenging GOP Attorney General Curtis Hill, whose law license is being suspended over his groping of four women.
The mailed-in ballots for attorney general nomination will be counted July 10.
The Indiana Republican Party’s 2018 convention was held in Evansville.
