As first reported weeks ago in the Cheat Sheet, Elkhart County prosecutor Curtis Hill has formed a campaign committee to run for the office of Attorney General.

Incumbent Greg Zoeller is not seeking a third term.

“My experience and my dedication to public service have led me to consider this next step in my career,” said Hill in a statement. “Already, I have been humbled by the outpouring of support and confidence from so many Hoosiers around our state.”

Hill has served as Elkhart County’s Prosecuting Attorney since 2003.  He is a native of Elkhart County, Indiana. He received his B.S. degree in Marketing from Indiana University, and his J.D. the Indiana University School of Law in 1987.

The only other name mentioned as a possible contender for Attorney General on the Republican side is State Senator Randy Head of Cass County.
