Bryan was running for Alabama State Auditor in 2014. He planned to seek Republican nomination in the June 3 primary but was barred from the primary ballot by the Alabama Republican Party.[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

At the outset of his campaign, Bryan announced his intent 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] Adam Thompson, who is also seeking the Republican nomination for the position, spoke against Bryan’s plan on the basis that the State Auditor is an elected position, as opposed to the Alabama Department of Examiners of Public Accounts, which 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]
