Steve Carter for Indiana /

Former Indiana Attorney General Steve Carter visited his hometown of Lafayette Thursday to make his first public statements in a bid to regain his former position.

Before his current tenure as the state’s top lawyer, Greg Zoeller served as deputy under then-Attorney General Steve Carter. Now that Zoeller is vacating the position to vie for a seat in the U.S House of Representatives, Carter wants his old job back.

A Logansport State Senator will make a bid to become the state’s next Attorney General.  He hopes to replace current AG Greg Zoeller, who is making a run for Congress and won’t seek another term.

Sen. Randy Head (R-Logansport) 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 Zoeller.
