McCarthy, the county executive the past eight years, appeared to have won her race for state auditor by the end of last week. Returns from general-election voting that concluded Nov. 8, while incomplete, gave the Democrat a lead of about 145,000 votes over Republican Mark Miloscia. If at least some of her lead holds up in the final tally, McCarthy will take the reins of the office that monitors the financial management of state and local government and other public-funded agencies. McCarthy was already scheduled to leave her county executive duties at the end of 2016, the last year of her two four-year terms that are allowed under the county charter. She’s also a former county auditor. Miloscia was running for state auditor for the second time. He lost in the primary election in 2012.
