(AP)- The head of the Indiana Department of Revenue has decided to challenge embattled state Attorney General Curtis Hill’s bid seeking the Republican nomination for the office.

Adam Krupp tells The (Fort Wayne) Journal Gazette he would resign as the revenue department’s commissioner by the end of January to run full-time for attorney general.

Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb appointed Krupp to the position in 2017 after he previously was an attorney in then-Gov. Mike Pence’s office. Hill is seeking reelection even as he awaits the outcome from professional misconduct allegations of drunkenly groping four women that threaten his law license.
