Massachusetts is unusually lucky to have two extremely competent and qualified women running for State Auditor.
The race is very close. Suzanne Bump has been maintaining a slight lead in the polls. In a recent Suffolk University/7News Poll, Suzanne Bump led Mary Connaughton 29 to 27%. A Globe poll two weeks later has Bump leading Connaughton 33 to 29%. With 5 weeks left before the election, 40% of voters have still not made up their minds.
