Insurance Commission Election Results Revealed

California Health Commissioner Ricardo Lara, Democrat, won 57.9% of the vote against Republican candidate Robert Howell. The Commissioner has been in office since 2018 and previously served as a California Senator and Representative.

“I am honored to be re-elected as California Insurance Commissioner and look forward to building on the progress we have made over the past four years as we fight for California consumers. “

In Georgia, Republican John King won with 54.3% of the vote, defeating Democrat Janice Lawes Robinson. This represented King’s first election victory.

The former Doraville Police Chief, Georgia Insurance Commissioner, has held the position since 2019.

“We won’t let you down,” King said in a message shared on social media.

This comes after Jim Beck, who was convicted in July 2019 of 37 fraud counts related to the diversion of more than $2.5 million in funds from the Georgia Underwriting Association, a state-licensed insurer. It represents King’s first victory in the election, as he was appointed as his replacement.

Kansas also elected a Republican Insurance Commissioner for another term. Vicki Schmidt won 62% of the vote against Democratic candidate Kiel Cochrane.

A pharmacist by profession, Schmidt has served as state insurance commissioner since 2019.

An uncontested Oklahoma winner, Mulready began his insurance career in 1984 as a broker and later served on the boards of two of Oklahoma’s largest health insurance companies.
