Republican Mike Harmon Wins Re-election, Will Remain As Kentucky Auditor
The Associated Press has called the race for Kentucky Auditor for Republican incumbent Mike Harmon. He has defeated Democratic challenger Sheri Donahue to remain as Kentucky’s Auditor of Public Accounts.
Over the past four years, Republican incumbent Mike Harmon has used the powers of his office to oversee special audits of the state’s pension systems, the Administrative Offices of the Courts, Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources and the University of Louisville Foundation.
During his reelection campaign, Harmon touted both his legislative and auditing experience, pointing to the audit of the state’s broadband project, KentuckyWired. That review found that the project was nearly $100 million over budget and raised questions about its inception under former Gov. Steve Beshear’s administration.
