Nebraska’s current State Auditor Mike Foley has left the office to run for Governor.

On May 13th, Nebraska holds its primary election. Two Republicans and one Democrat will run for the State Auditor position.

Democrat Amanda McGill has been a State senator since 2007.  She is running unopposed in the primary election. 

Republicans Larry Anderson and Charlie Janssen will run against one another on the 13th.

Anderson is an auditor in the State Auditor’s office.  He believes his background in accounting and experience in the Army make him a good candidate for the position. 

A native of Fremont, Janssen has been a State senator since 2009.  Before that he was on the Fremont City Council from 2005-2008.

Janssen’s focus is on economic development, job creation and tax cuts.
