Joe Hogsett Career and Achievement

Secretary of State

In 1986 Hogsett served as campaign manager for Evan Bayh's successful bid for Secretary of State of Indiana. Bayh tapped Hogsett to serve in the position of deputy Secretary of State. Hogsett then managed Bayh's successful campaign for Governor of Indiana two years later and was appointed by Bayh to the office of Secretary of State that Bayh had vacated. Hogsett won reelection against Indianapolis Mayor Bill Hudnut in 1990. Hogsett received 775,163 votes (51.83%) and Hudnut received 719,314 votes (48.10%). Hogsett served as Secretary of State until December 1, 1994, when he declined to run for re-election. As of 2014 he is the last Democrat to occupy the office of Indiana Secretary of State.

Congressional and Senate Elections

In 1992, Hogsett ran for the U.S. Senate against Republican incumbent Dan Coats. Coats, who had been appointed to the seat by Governor Robert D. Orr in 1989 after Dan Quayle resigned to become Vice President of the United States, had won a special election in 1990 to serve out the remainder of Quayle's term and was seeking a full 6-year term in office. Hogsett lost to Coats by 900,148 votes (40.8%) to 1,267,972 (57.3%), carrying 13 of the state's 92 counties

In 1994, Hogsett ran to succeed retiring Democratic Congressman Philip Sharp of Indiana's 2nd congressional district. He faced Republican David M. McIntosh and lost by 78,241 votes (45.5%) to 93,592 (54.5%), in a year when the Republicans made sweeping gains.

Despite having been recruited by state Democratic Party leaders, Hogsett declined to run in the 2000 2nd congressional district election.

Democratic Party Chairman and Attorney General Election

In February 2003, Hogsett became Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party after incumbent Chairman, Peter Manous, resigned. Hogsett then resigned in June 2004 so that he could run for Attorney General of Indiana. He was replaced by Kip Tew to be party Chairman.

Hogsett lost to Republican incumbent Steve Carter. Carter received 1,389,640 votes (58.18%), Hogsett received 953,500 votes (39.92%) and Libertarian Aaron Milewski received 45,212 votes (1.89%).

United States Attorney

In July 2010, President Barack Obama nominated Hogsett to be United States Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, succeeding Timothy M. Morris. He went on to be unanimously confirmed by a full vote of the US Senate.

Hogsett's tenure was marked by an aggressive approach in combating violent crime, public corruption, child exploitation and civil rights violations. Local commentators have described Hogsett's efforts as bringing "more muscle to crimefighting," and he has launched a number of initiatives related to these priorities.

2015 Indianapolis Mayoral Election

On August 15, 2012, the Indianapolis Star published a piece entitled, "Is U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett eyeing a run at Indianapolis mayor?" The profile noted that Hogsett's visibility and successes as U.S. Attorney had fueled speculation of a return to politics in Indiana, citing both the 2015 mayoral election in Indianapolis and the 2016 U.S. Senate race as possibilities. Hogsett received especially strong praise from former U.S. Senator Evan Bayh, who described Hogsett as "a wonderful representative for the Democratic Party and the people of Indiana."

In December 2012, the Indianapolis Business Journal named Hogsett a 2012 Newsmaker in a piece entitled, "Crime stance returns Hogsett to political spotlight."

In July 2014, four years after his nomination as U.S. Attorney, Hogsett announced he would leave the office at the end of the month. The decision was widely interpreted to mean that Hogsett would consider a run against Republican Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard. Media reports indicated that Hogsett's decision may have been motivated by the record-breaking violent crime spree affecting the city.

In the days that followed his resignation announcement, a social media campaign was launched urging Hogsett to run for mayor in 2015. In August 2014, he formed an exploratory committee.

On November 5, Mayor Ballard announced that he would not run for re-election to a third term in office. Seven days later, Hogsett announced his candidacy. He handily defeated Republican nominee Chuck Brewer with 63 percent of the vote, giving the Democrats complete control of city government for only the second time since the formation of Unigov in 1970.
