It looks like we will be having a new state auditor here in Delaware.
According to WDEL.com “Incumbent Delaware Auditor Kathy McGuiness has been defeated by challenger Lydia York in a landslide in Tuesday’s Delaware primary for the Democratic nomination for the office.”
York won 69.9% of the vote with nearly 95% of the precincts reporting as of 10 p.m. McGuiness did not win a single district.

“I’m still overwhelmed with it,” York said, shortly after her victory was announced on Tuesday night. “It’s still quite heartening to know that there was this swell of support for me.”
In a DelawareOnline.com interview York said, “I think a lot of people came out and may not have known me as well as I would have liked them to know about me,” she said. “But they had a choice. And that was, frankly, one of the reasons I ran. They needed to have a choice. And specifically a choice for someone who was (not) tangled up in the criminal justice system.”
York will now face Republican Janice Lorrah, in November.
