Arredondo Announces Candidacy for Attorney General

Judge Lorenzo Arredondo, who served as a Lake County judge for 34 years, has announced that he will seek the Democratic nomination for Indiana attorney general. At the time of his retirement from the bench in 2011, he was the nation's longest serving Hispanic state trial judge. He was one of the founders of the nationwide Hispanic Bar Association and is a professor at the National Judicial College. The justice center in Lake County is named for this distinguished jurist. Shaw Friedman writes in Howey Politics Indiana, "Having Judge Arredondo run for attorney general means having a marquee, top flight candidate for our party." The nominee of the party will be named at the 2016 Democratic Party convention next June. Read more from NWI Times here and here.
