The campaign of Indiana attorney general candidate Todd Rokita announced Tuesday that he had "recently tested positive" for COVID-19 after "developing some symptoms."

Rokita, the Republican candidate on the ticket for Indiana Attorney General, was reportedly "informed by a person unconnected to any campaign events" that he had been exposed to COVID-19, and since then, has been quarantining under state guidelines.

An exact timeline of the events wasn't disclosed, but the statement says that Rokita was "recently" tested for the virus after developing some symptoms, which returned a positive test result.

"He is doing well and working from home," Rokita's campaign said on Tuesday. "He looks forward to tonight's election returns and to serving as Indiana's next Attorney General."

According to the statement issued by Rokita's campaign Tuesday, Rokita and his family will be watching election returns from home this evening.

Democratic Indiana AG candidate Jonathan Weinzapfel took to Twitter late on Tuesday, wishing Rokita a "full and speedy recovery."
