EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – On Monday, Jonathan Weinzapfel filed paperwork with the Indiana Democratic Party to officially become a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Indiana Attorney General.

Weinzapfel was elected mayor of Evansville in 2003, and re-elected in 2007.

After his two terms as mayor, Weinzapfel served as chancellor of the Ivy Tech Evansville campus from 2014-2019.

He also served in the Indiana General Assembly as a state representative from 1999-2003.

“From protecting Hoosiers’ health care, to fighting fraud, to ensuring our criminal justice system works for our citizens and makes our communities safer, I will be an Attorney General that fights for Hoosier families,” said Weinzapfel. “I’m excited about earning the delegates’ support at this convention and beginning the work of restoring honor, integrity and purpose to the Office of Attorney General.”
