HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – State Auditor General Eugene DePasquale is being returned to the job to serve four more years as Pennsylvania’s fiscal watchdog.
The Democratic incumbent bested three challengers Tuesday to head an office with more than 400 employees and a budget of more than $50 million.
The agency keeps tabs on state spending and recommends changes to how government agencies operate.
Auditor general has been a political launching pad in recent years. The last three people elected to hold the position all later ran for higher office.
