Auditor’s Dem challenger following GOP foe’s

The campaign for state auditor has centered on the challenger accusing the incumbent of mismanaging campaign funds and not totally concentrating on his job.

Joce Pritchett, a 48-year-old engineer running as a Democrat, has used a lot of the talking points Madison Mayor Mary Hawkins-Butler did in the Republican primary against Stacey Pickering. Pickering defeated Butler in August and faces Pritchett in the Nov. 3 general election.
