Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill announced this morning that he is running for re-election in 2020.

In a statement this morning, Hill said…

“Over the last three years, I have worked to fulfill my pledge to Hoosiers: from cracking down on violent criminals to protecting the most vulnerable in our society. Standing for what’s right is harder than ever, but I do it every day with courage and conviction as Attorney General, and I’m just getting started. That’s why, today, I am announcing my re-election campaign for Attorney General. Indiana needs strength, courage, and bold conservative leadership.  At a time when freedom and our way of life are under attack, I’ll continue to work with President Trump, and others, on important issues facing our nation and state. I’ll never back down from partisan attacks, the media, and even Republicans embarrassed to defend our values.”

Hill currently faces the possibility of losing his law license following a hearing by the Indiana Supreme Court disciplinary commission where he was accused of groping four women at a post-session party in 2018.

Hill would have to secure his party’s nomination at a convention next year.  So far, the only announced challenger is Indianapolis attorney John Westercamp.
