Indiana Attorney General: Republican Curtis Hill elected

Elkhart County Prosecutor Curtis Hill// WSBT 22

In the race for Indiana Attorney General, Republican Curtis Hill, has won the vote.

The 55-year-old Hill beat retired Lake County Circuit Court judge Lorenzo Arredondo, a 75-year-old Democrat.

The two men sought to succeed Attorney General Greg Zoeller, who did not seek a third term after losing May's Republican primary for a U.S. House seat.

Hill was elected prosecutor in 2002, 2006, 2010, and 2014.

Delegates at the GOP state convention selected Hill over three other candidates in early June.

He is the first African-American male to hold the Attorney General’s Office seat. Two black women, both Democrats, have previously held the post.
