State Senator Amanda McGill wrapped up a statewide tour Sunday after announcing she'll run for state auditor earlier in the week.
McGill - who can no longer run for state senate because of term limits - said she'd follow the lead of current Auditor Mike Foley.
She said she'd also put new emphasis on waste within the Department of Correctional Services, if elected.
"I'd like to work more collaboratively with state agencies and the legislature to uncover more problems; and help state employees understand the importance of best practices and incorporating those in their businesses to make sure there aren't accounting mistakes and make sure that there isn't embezzlement," she said. "I don't think our agencies and departments and government need to feel like the auditor is always their enemy, but someone who is there to help them do their jobs better."
McGill made stops in North Platte, Lexington, Kearney and Lincoln Sunday.
Auditor Foley has announced his run for governor.
