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.

Holcomb was the first candidate to enter the race -- he jumped in days after Dan Coats announced his retirement last March.
