Scott Fitzpatrick Wins State Auditor’s Race

In the race for State Auditor, Missouri State Treasure Scott Fitzpatrick wins the race by a landslide.

The Republican dominated state voted in droves for the southwest Missouri resident with nearly 60 percent of the total vote and over 1,100,000 votes on the night.

Fitzpatrick’s opponent, Democratic nominee Alan Green, received less than 38 percent of the vote.

As state auditor, the Cassville High School and University of Missouri Graduate will oversee lawmakers use of state tax dollars to prevent fraud and abuse throughout Missouri.
