State Auditor candidate Kathleen Davies appears to have abused her power during her time as acting State Auditor, according to a report obtained by the News Journal.

State Auditor Tom Wagner gave Davies temporary authority to act on his behalf in 2011 as he underwent medical procedures. He is retiring this year because of health concerns.

Republicans are again looking for someone to run for State Auditor

A week after launching her campaign, Joan Winters has dropped out.

Winters cited family as the reason for ending her first bid for political office.

"My family is the single most important thing to me, and the unanticipated rigors of a statewide campaign far exceed what I expected leaving me little time for the ones I love most. For that reason, I have decided not to run for State Auditor," said Winters in her statement.
