In early returns San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister appeared to be heading toward an easy re-election Tuesday night.
McAllister, who has held the role since 2002, was running against corporate executive Greg Hodosevich. The position is a four-year term and oversees a department that collects more than $7 billion in annual property taxes.
McAllister received the lion’s share of support, with endorsements from The San Diego Union-Tribune, Republican Party of San Diego County, Lincoln Club of San Diego County and others. Hodosevich was endorsed by the San Diego County Democratic Party.
The post is nonpartisan, but Hodosevich is a Democrat and McAllister is a Republican. It was unclear how much party impacted the race because of McAllister’s long tenure.
