The Clarion Ledger’s Geoff Pender is reporting:
After months of consideration, Madison Mayor Mary Hawkins Butler has qualified to run for state auditor.

Hawkins in a message confirmed she has qualified Monday, and will have an official announcement later.

Hawkins, a Republican, will challenge incumbent two-term Auditor Stacey Pickering, who has said he is seeking re-election.

One thought on “Mayor Mary Hawkins Butler qualifies to run for auditor

  1. So will the THAD/BARBOUR machine go after Mayor Mary the way they did Chris McDaniel? Probably not in view of Mary’s close association with Thad over the years. Or will we be seeing a new inter-party dispute?
