INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Curtis Hill, the former Indiana Attorney General who lost his re-election bid in 2020, has formally filed as a candidate to replace Jackie Walorski in Indiana’s 2nd congressional district.

The list of candidates also includes:

Yakym is the director of growth initiatives at Granger-based Kem Krest, which manages and markets customer-branded parts and chemicals. He was endorsed Monday by Dean Swihart, the husband of Jackie Walorski.
