Logansport Republican Randy Head Announces Bid For Attorney General

INDIANAPOLIS -- An northern Indiana State Senator will make a bid to become the state’s next Attorney General. 

Republican Randy Head is wrapping up his second term in the State Senate this year and wants to move up the political ladder.  The Logansport senator spent 14 years as a deputy prosecutor and says his trial experience as well as his time in the legislature position him well to replace fellow Republican Greg Zoeller, who is running for Congress. 



Head says his top priority in the position would be opposing what he calls federal overreach.

“People in Indiana and in the rest of the states don’t like being told what to do by the federal government," Head said. "As the federal government expands, it takes power away from the states and that upsets a lot of people.  And the attorney general is the one person in state government that could do something about it.”

Head added that he doesn’t want to drastically change how Zoeller has run the office.

Other Republican hopefuls include Elkhart County Prosecutor Curtis Hill and former Attorney General Steve Carter.  The State Republican Party will choose its nominee for the post at its convention later this year.
