Back To Front Page


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A 30-year-old lawyer is launching a challenge to embattled Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hillís possible re-election bid.

John Westercamp announced Thursday heís seeking the Republican nomination that will be decided during the summer 2020 state party convention. Westercamp is a lawyer at the Indianapolis firm Bose McKinney & Evans and calls himself a ďpro-life, principled, conservative Hoosier.Ē

Hill has denied allegations of drunkenly groping four women during a party last year. A special prosecutor declined to pursue criminal charges against the first-term Republican, but the women last week filed a federal lawsuit against Hill and the state.

Hillís campaign committee has been raising money even though he hasnít announced whether heíll seek re-election.

Westercamp said the distractions around the attorney generalís office havenít been good for the state.
