MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Democrat Miranda Joseph of Birmingham is making another run for state auditor.

 

Joseph ran against Republican incumbent Samantha Shaw in 2010 and lost. She has filed papers with the state to run again in 2014, when Shaw won't be on the ballot.

 

Joseph has created a campaign website and says she plans a formal kickoff soon. She is stressing her work as a certified internal auditor. Joseph filed a report with the state last week saying she had not yet raised or spent $25,000 on her campaign. That's the threshold for filing periodic reports of donations.

 

Two Republicans are running for auditor: Anniston attorney Ray Bryan and Adam Thompson, who works in the secretary of state's office in Montgomery.

 

The primary election is June 3, 2014.
