Nicole Galloway (born June 13, 1982)[1] is an American politician. She has been the State Auditor of Missouri since 2015. She is a candidate for Governor of Missouri in the 2020 election.[2]

Galloway is a member of the Democratic Party.[3] Galloway was appointed as State Auditor of Missouri by Governor Jay Nixon on April 14, 2015, following the resignation of John Watson.[4] John Watson was appointed as State Auditor following the death of Tom Schweich in February 2015, before Galloway's appointment as State Auditor nearly two months later.[5]

Following the defeat of U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill in the 2018, Galloway is the only female state officeholder and the only Democratic statewide elected official in Missouri.[6]

On August 12, 2019, Galloway announced that she is entering the Democratic primary for the 2020 Missouri gubernatorial election. She lost the election to Mike Parson in November 2020.
