Dority ran for North Carolina Auditor in 2012. He faced Joseph Hank DeBragga, Debra Goldman, Fern Shubert and Rudy Wright in the Republican primary on May 8. Since no candidate received more than 40 percent the top two vote-getters, Dority and Debra Goldman, were slated to head to a runoff on July 17, but Dority declined the election, conceding the election to Goldman. Incumbent Beth Wood was unopposed in the Democratic primary. The general election took place on November 6, 2012.
