Secretary Of State Endorses Employee For Auditor
Outgoing Secretary of State Beth Chapman has endorsed one of her employees, Adam Thompson, for state auditor.
In a statement Thursday, Chapman said Thompson was her right hand when she served as state auditor from 2003 to 2007, and he is the only candidate with experience in the auditor's office. Thompson currently works in the secretary of state's office.
He faces Anniston attorney Ray Bryan in the Republican primary on June 3, 2014. Democrat Miranda Joseph of Birmingham is also running.
Chapman is stepping down as secretary of state at the end of the month to become a political consultant with the Alabama Farmers Federation.
