Indy mayoral run? US Attorney Hogsett steps down

INDIANAPOLIS – U.S. Attorney Joseph Hogsett is resigning as the top federal prosecutor for central and southern Indiana after nearly four years in the position.

The decision announced Monday by the former Indiana secretary of state follows months of speculation that he will seek the Democratic nomination for Indianapolis mayor next year.
