Susan Hunter Wallace squeaked by in Tuesday’s runoff election for Lancaster County auditor, narrowly defeating Allen Blackmon.
Hunter Wallace received 1,848 votes (51.3 percent) in the Republican runoff, leaving Blackmon close behind with 1,755 votes (48.7 percent). She will have no Democratic opposition in November’s general election.
“I’m humbled, and I know I’m privileged to be the next auditor,” Hunter Wallace said. “It’s not money and it’s not power. I give (God) all the glory for this win.”
