Ind. Gov't. - Two major state papers today endorse Greg Zoeller for another term as Attorney General
The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette's long endorsement begins:
A series of high-profile cases, a willingness to jump into the political fray and an emphasis on keeping the public informed have made Greg Zoeller an unusually prominent Indiana attorney general.The Indianapolis Star's briefer endorsement begins:
Though his activism sometimes seemed to border on using the law for partisan purposes, Zoeller has repeatedly displayed a respect for the law over politics and, perhaps most of all, a determination to make sure Hoosiers and their elected officials are well-represented in court. Though his Democratic challenger, Kay Fleming, is a competent attorney with a public-service background and would likely make a good attorney general, Zoeller has earned a second term.
Greg Zoeller is a quietly competent leader and attorney, one who gained valuable experience serving largely behind the scenes in his predecessor Steve Carter's administration.
So it's a bit ironic that Zoeller's first term as Indiana attorney general was marked by two high profile and highly controversial issues -- illegal immigration and the federal health-care law.
