From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:
Republican State Rep. Keith Faber has raised the most money in the Ohio state auditor’s race so far, according to the Ohio secretary of state’s office.
Monday was the deadline for statewide candidates to submit campaign finance reports for the first half of 2017, though candidates often voluntarily provide information on donations after the June 30 reporting deadline.
One of five statewide executive elected offices in Ohio, the state auditor is responsible for auditing public bodies, investigating fraud in public agencies, and providing financial services to local governments, among other duties.
Term-limited GOP incumbent Dave Yost is running for attorney general.
