Ex-Evansville mayor enters Indiana attorney general race

Regional News

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) – A former mayor of Evansville is the second Democrat seeking to unseat Republican Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill.

Jonathan Weinzapfel announced his campaign Tuesday, saying he would “restore honor and integrity to the attorney general’s office.”

Weinzapfel was Evansville’s mayor from 2004 until 2011 following five years as a state representative. He was chancellor of Ivy Tech State College’s Evansville campus from 2014 until recently stepping down.

Weinzapfel’s candidacy comes after Democratic state Sen. Karen Tallian of Ogden Dunes announced her bid for the attorney general nomination in August. The nominee will be picked during next summer’s state Democratic convention.
