State Auditor Tom Salmon was re-elected to a second term even though he didn't campaign at all.

Salmon is a member of the U.S. Navy Reserves and he's on active duty in Iraq.

So Salmon's 17-year-old son, Buster, gave his father's acceptance speech.

(Salmon) ``As you saw with the last election, with the recount, every vote counts. So I really appreciate what everyone's done for him. Hopefully he'll be home safe and sound pretty soon. And thank you. Thank you all, very much.'' 

(Host) Salmon was easily re-elected.
