Zoeller wins 2nd term as Indiana attorney general

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller has won re-election as the state government's top lawyer.

The Republican defeated Democratic nominee Kay Fleming to win a second four-year term.

Zoeller has overseen distribution of millions of dollars from the state to victims of last year's deadly Indiana State Fair stage rigging collapse.

He's defended in court a GOP-backed state law seeking to cut off much of Planned Parenthood's government funding and joined other Republican state attorneys general in challenging the federal health care overhaul.

But he's drawn the ire of some Republicans for declining to defend disputed portions of Indiana's immigration law in federal court following a Supreme Court ruling invalidating a similar measure in Arizona.
