Nebraska state Sen. Charlie Janssen is running for auditor.

The Fremont lawmaker filed papers Tuesday to seek the office held by Mike Foley, who is running for governor.

Janssen entered the contest little more than two weeks after he withdrew from the Republican gubernatorial primary race. State Sen. Amanda McGill of Lincoln, a Democrat, is also running for the auditor's job.

Janssen and McGill are the only two candidates who have filed for auditor. Sen. Pete Pirsch previously announced that he was a candidate, but he said last week that he would run instead for Nebraska attorney general.

Janssen has served in the Legislature since 2008, and was re-elected in 2012. He previously served on the Fremont City Council.
