Kreidler, Lindeen Take Top Insurance Regulator Spots

Mike Kreidler and Monica Lindeen have won the elections for top insurance regulators in their respective states. In Montana, Democrat Lindeen beat Republican Duane Grimes for the position of State Auditor.

Lindeen considers herself a consumer advocate. She pledged “to work hard to ensure Montanans are treated fairly by the insurance and securities industries, that we find solutions which ensure access to quality and affordable health care, and that our state lands are well managed for the future of our children,” according to her campaign.

In Washington, incumbent Mike Kreidler beat John Adams as was expected. This will be his third term in the office.
