INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The November 2014 election is a long way off but a candidate for state auditor is getting an early start. Democrat Michael Claytor will kick off his campaign on Thursday.
Claytor is a retired CPA who spent most of his career in state government, where he was lead examiner at the State Board of Accounts.
Republican Dwayne Sawyer was recently appointed to fill out the term of departed State Auditor Tim Berry. A Sawyer-Claytor matchup is likely in 2014.
"You know, the auditor of state is the chief financial officer," said Claytor, "and I believe we ought to have someone in that office that's a CPA and financially qualified to perform those responsibilities."
The last time a Democrat won the race for state auditor was in 1982.
