~ Update includes the Michigan Governor’s race.
Here’s a rundown of some of the more prominent races that feature accountants. All of the polling information cited is the calculated average from Real Clear Politics.
• New York – Incumbent Senator Kirsten Gillibrand leads Republican Joe DioGuardi by approximately 20 points. For those not familiar with DioGuardi, he is an Arthur Andersen alum who made partner at age 31, was the first practicing CPA elected to Congress and is the father of Kara DioGuardi (ask the person next to you if you don’t know).
So it looks as though your bean counter brethren will win at least
two three races (Haley, Johnson, Snyder) with one certain defeat and one that’s too close to call.
