INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WEHT) — The Attorney General of Indiana plans to run for re-election.
While he was expected to run, Curtis Hill made it formal in a press release his office shared Thursday morning just after 5 a.m.
Hill was elected to office in 2016.
In the press release, Hill says…
“Over the last three years, I have worked to fulfill my pledge to Hoosiers: from cracking down on violent criminals to protecting the most vulnerable in our society. Standing for what’s right is harder than ever, but I do it every day with courage and conviction as Attorney General, and I’m just getting started. That’s why, today, I am announcing my re-election campaign for Attorney General. Indiana needs strength, courage, and bold conservative leadership.”
“At a time when freedom and our way of life are under attack, I’ll continue to work with President Trump, and others, on important issues facing our nation and state. I’ll never back down from partisan attacks, the media, and even Republicans embarrassed to defend our values.”
In July, he announced his campaign raised more than $200,000 in two months.
John Westercamp has announced he will challenge Hill in the Republican Primary.
