INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Republicans have scuttled Attorney General Curtis Hill's bid for reelection following a monthlong suspension of his law license over allegations that he groped a state lawmaker and three other women during a party. Former U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita prevailed Friday in mail-in voting by state convention delegates. The state Republican chairman said Rokita defeated Hill with 52% of the vote in a third round of voting after two lesser-known candidates finished last in previous rounds. Rokita said he entered the race because Hill had a history of "bad judgment, bad choices and not taking responsibilities" marring his time as state government's top lawyer.
