State Auditor Nicole Galloway has announced her intentions to be Missouri’s next Governor.
“Government isn’t doing much to make a difference for you and your family unless you are a well-connected insider. Health care costs are going through the roof and parents are worried about their kids being able to make a good life close to home. I’m one of them,” Galloway says in the video.
Galloway continues by saying its difficult for taxpayers to trust the state with their tax dollars and she promises to end “dark money and insider deals.”
The Columbia Democrat also says she opposes a new law that would stop abortions after eight weeks with no exceptions for rape or incest.
Galloway was appointed to her current position by former Governor Jay Nixon.
Galloway was elected to a full term as State Auditor of Missouri in the State Auditor election on November 6, 2018, winning by 135,571 votes, or nearly 6 percent, with 50.4% of the vote to her opponent’s 44.6%
Her office’s audits have identified more than $350 million in government waste, fraud, and mismanagement. Partnering with law enforcement, her audits have led to 40 criminal counts brought against corrupt public officials, both Democrats and Republicans.
Gov. Mike Parson, a Republican, is expected to announce soon that he’s running for the job he inherited after the resignation of Gov. Eric Greitens.
