Todd Rokita entering Indiana attorney general race

HENDRICKS COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) – A former congressman will challenge Attorney General Curtis Hill for the Republican nomination at Indiana’s June Republican State Convention.

Todd Rokita announced Wednesday that he is entering the race for Indiana’s attorney general.

“Running against a Republican officeholder is not something I ever would want to do, in just about any circumstance. But our incumbent is wounded.  The unanimous Supreme Court ruling, by Republican appointed and conservative Justices, after a significant investigation of the facts made this choice clear.”

The former fourth district congressman and Indiana secretary of state had previously sought the Republican nomination for Indiana’s U.S. Senate seat in 2018, losing to Sen. Mike Braun.
