INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Elkhart County Prosecutor Curtis Hill Jr. has won the Republican nomination for Indiana attorney general.

Delegates to the Indiana GOP's state convention selected Hill Saturday over three other candidates: state Sen. Randy Head, former Republican Attorney General Steve Carter and Assistant Attorney General Abby Kuzma.

Hill says he'll protect Indiana residents from "an alarming rise" in substance abuse and violence and will fight "unconstitutional overreach" by the federal government.

Hill will face retired Lake County Circuit Court Judge Lorenzo Arrendondo, a Democrat, in the general election. They're vying to replace Greg Zoeller, who's running for Congress.

Republicans also selected Yorktown Community Schools Superintendent Jennifer McCormick as the GOP nominee for state superintendent. McCormick defeated Dawn Wooten.

She's looking to unseat incumbent Democrat Glenda Ritz in November.
