AG candidate Rokita tests positive for coronavirus

Todd Rokita, the Republican candidate for attorney general, buried the lead in a release his campaign sent out Tuesday afternoon saying that he will be staying home with his family to watch election returns.

In the alert, headlined “ADVISORY: Todd Rokita Election Night Location,” the campaign said Rokita will be watching election returns from home.

Why not at the GOP party at the JW Marriott?

“Todd was informed by a person unconnected to any campaign activities that he was exposed to COVID-19. As a result, he and his family have been quarantining following the state’s guidelines,” the statement said. “Todd just recently tested positive after developing some symptoms. He is doing well and working from home.”

Rokita is facing Democrat Jonathan Weinzapfel, the former mayor of Evansville.
