HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind.–Attorney and former WIBC radio host Greg Garrison won the Republican nomination for Hamilton County Prosecutor Tuesday night.

He defeated incumbent D. Lee Buckingham.

“Thank you to the people of Hamilton County for putting your trust in me. This election is about ensuring that Hamilton County is safer for our residents now and training the next generation of prosecutors for the continued safety of our children, grandchildren, and generations to come,” said Garrison.

Garrison said he was urged to run for prosecutor by law enforcement, judiciary friends, and family who were concerned with the current administration. He says his plan is to build a stronger group of deputy prosecutors.

“The next generation of prosecutors in Hamilton County need to be trained now. I want it to be well known that Hamilton County is the last place you want to commit a felony,” said Garrison.

If Democrats want someone to run against Garrison in November, they have until July 3rd to appoint a candidate.
