Wagner wins re-election as Pa. auditor general

HARRISBURG, Pa. - November 4, 2008 - The campaigns for Pennsylvania's three statewide "row offices" were largely overshadowed by the hotly contested presidential campaign.

McCord's ability to advertise heavily on TV gave him a leg up in the treasurer's race, which featured two newcomers to state politics.

Incumbent Treasurer Robin Wiessmann agreed not to seek a full four-year term when she was appointed to fill a vacancy created by Bob Casey's election to the U.S. Senate.

Each of the row offices carries substantial responsibility and an annual salary that is currently about $142,000.
