Thompson is running for election to the Alabama State Auditor. Thompson is seeking the Republican nomination in the primary.[3] The general election takes place November 4, 2014.

The seat will be open as current Auditor Samantha Shaw (R) is term-limited and unable to seek re-election.

Campaign themes

One of Thompson's opponents, Ray Bryan, announced early in his campaign an intention to have the office of State Auditor abolished via constitutional amendment, and to have its duties absorbed by other parts of the state government, such as Examiners of Public Accounts.[4] He claimed this proposal fit with recent legislative efforts to consolidate the state government. A spokesman for Senator Del Marsh, who was involved in some of these efforts, stated that Senate's reorganization efforts had focused on departments with larger budgets and did not include plans for abolishing the office.[5] Thompson opposed Bryan’s plan on the basis that the State Auditor is an elected position and the Alabama Department of Examiners of Public Accounts is a legislative agency. He stated that, "The Examiners of Public Accounts is a legislative agency and answers to the Legislature. The auditor is independently elected and answers to the people.”[4] The Alabama Chief Examiner, who heads the Examiners of Public Accounts, is a legislatively appointed position.[6]

Personal

Thompson was born in Dothan, Alabama, lived on a Dale County farm and later moved to Montgomery. He currently lives in Pike Road, Alabama with his wife Rebecca.[2]
