Hogsett opens new campaign headquarters

Joe Hogsett

Former U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett opened his new campaign headquarters Tuesday.

Hogsett has not yet officially announced he's running for Mayor of Indianapolis, but he has formed an exploratory committee to look into a campaign.

"My experience as the federal prosecutor, I think, blends very well with the Mayor's office and the responsibility of the Mayor and the Police Department have to keep our Neighborhoods and communities safe," Hogsett said Tuesday.

Eyewitness News caught up with Mayor Greg Ballard at an event Tuesday to ask him about his potential competitor, but he had little to say.

"I have no comment on that," said Ballard. "I'm running the city. I don't know why everybody's so interested so far out."

We will be at Hogsett's campaign office opening and bring you any updates if he announces his candidacy.
