Nebraska state Sen. Amanda McGill announced Thursday she will run for the position of Nebraska state auditor.
“I have spent my career in the Legislature working across party lines to bring significant change to our state. When problems arise, like the failed privatization of foster care, I have been a leader in developing and passing reforms. If elected, I will continue the good work that our current State Auditor Mike Foley has done of holding government accountable to the people.”
Foley is seeking the Republican nomination for governor.
McGill, a Democrat, has represented District 26 in northeast Lincoln for the past seven years. She cannot seek re-election because of term limits.
McGill goes on a 15-city campaign tour across Nebraska Thursday through Sunday, including stops in Omaha and Lincoln.
State Sen. Pete Pirsch, a Republican, announced his candidacy for state auditor in October.
