Combs has been very popular with fiscal Conservatives and has worked very hard to educate the public about our growing local government debt issues. I'd say this endorsement is huge.
Here's the press release from the Hegar campaign:
Texas Comptroller Susan Combs Endorses Glenn Hegar for Comptroller
"I've known Glenn Hegar for many years. He is a man of conservative principles, strong values and great integrity. He loves his state and nation and I trust him to help lead Texas as our next Comptroller," Combs said. "Glenn is a fighter, and has a proven track record of reducing government inefficiencies and saving taxpayer dollars. He understands that business is the engine of our economy and he is committed to keeping it strong. I hope my fellow Texans will join me in supporting my friend, Glenn Hegar."
Combs made the announcement this morning at a breakfast event of republican leaders at the Texas Federation of Republican Women Convention in San Antonio.
"Susan Combs is a bold leader and has had an enormous impact on Texas. She has helped us create an economy equal to none in the country and has worked tirelessly for the citizens of Texas," commented Hegar. "I'm honored that she supports my candidacy and will faithfully carry on her legacy of transparency and government accountability if elected."
