INDIANAPOLIS - Facing a Republican convention challenge from John Westercamp, Attorney General Curtis Hill's reelection campaign announced he has raised $220,000 in the past two months. Informed and reliable sources tell HPI that $100,000 of those funds came from the Republican Attorney Generals fund. Hill is seeking reelection despite calls for his resignation by Gov. Eric Holcomb, Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, legislative leaders and U.S. Sen. Mike Braun after sexual harassment allegations were leveled by four women.

The Hill campaign believes that is a record for an Indiana attorney general. “From challenging the constitutionality of ObamaCare to fighting illegal immigration to defending the right to life, I have taken on the tough fights as Attorney General," Hill said  "It’s been one of the highest honors of my life to serve and I am just getting started,” Hill said.  “I look forward to continuing to work to defend the rule of law, our conservative values and our way of life.

The campaign added, "This fundraising success is a testament to Attorney General Hill’s record of delivering results and following through on the campaign promises made in 2016."
