Senator Tallian Launches Campaign for Attorney General

State Senator Karen Tallian (D, Ogden Dunes) announces today that she has opened a campaign to run for Indiana Attorney General.  Her office issues the following statement:

“While I have been proud to serve in the State Senate, a decade of Republican supermajority across three branches of government has made Indiana a state of extreme politics. I am running to restore checks and balances to the Statehouse and to be a voice for all who live here.  It is time that Hoosiers have leadership that listens to their problems and fights for solutions.

The Attorney General should be the Citizen’s Advocate and work for all of us, not filing lawsuits trying to take away our legal rights.  The Attorney General’s office should not be trying to promote a right-wing agenda to overturn healthcare for pre-existing conditions and take away the ability for Hoosiers to have affordable insurance coverage.  Curtis Hill has not been an advocate for Indiana citizens, and he has not brought integrity and reason to this office. 

My Senate record speaks for itself: I wrote the law that makes it harder for banks to foreclose on homeowners. I have protected our pensions and I have defended our civil rights. As a member of the Criminal Law committee, I helped revise our outdated criminal code to make sure that the punishment fits the crime.  As the Attorney General, I will continue to advocate for our citizens.”

Tallian has been in the State Senate since 2005, and was re-elected in 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2018.   She is the Caucus Chair for the Senate Democrats, is the ranking minority member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, and is the Senate Democrat delegate on the state Budget Committee.  She also serves on thePensions and Labor and Environmental Affairs committees. 

She is well known as the first legislator to call for reform of marijuana laws. Shehas for years persistently offered bills to decriminalize marijuana possession and to allow for use of medical marijuana. 

More information about Senator Tallian will be available at her new website: TallianforAttorneyGeneral.com
