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."

It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon throughout the Tri-State, but despite our seemingly endless supply of sunshine today, temperatures remained more than 10° cooler than the norm for this time of the year. Fortunately, today's peak temperature of 65° represents our coolest anticipated afternoon high temperature through the remainder of our extended forecast. While it is indeed encouraging that temperatures will gradually rise through the rest of the work week into the weekend ahead, we'll still have to deal with temperatures back down into the upper 30s and low 40s early Thursday morning.
