Williams Running for Auditor General in 2012

Williams Running for Auditor General in 2012



State Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams of Philadlephia, whose campaign for governor fell short in the Democratic primary, plans to run for Auditor General in 2012, according to advisers.

Williams broke the news to supporters are a thank-you reception Thursday night at the Constitution Center.

He set a Pennsylvania record for campaign contributions, with three Susquehanna International Group investors kicking in a total of nearly $5.4 million. The executives are big supporters of school choice, including vouchers to help parents pay for private schools, as is Williams.

Williams has not yet filed his required final campaign finance report; the figures came from the final report for Students First, a PAC funded mostly by the three men.
