Looks Forward to Working to Elect Hegar as Next Comptroller

SAN ANTONIO, TX – Conservative Republican candidate for Texas Comptroller Harvey Hilderbran today announced that he is withdrawing from the Republican primary runoff after finishing in second place with over 300,000 votes in the March 4 primary.

“I just had a great conversation with Glenn Hegar and I told him I was withdrawing from the runoff and endorsing him as the Republican nominee,” said Hilderbran.  “I am proud of the campaign that we ran, and I will always be grateful to my tireless campaign team and the hundreds of contributors and thousands of supporters that we had from all over Texas.  I ran for this office to enact a plan to improve the Comptroller’s office for taxpayers and I am excited that Glenn has agreed to work together to enact much of my platform, for the benefit of all taxpayers.  I urge all Republicans to support Glenn as our nominee and help ensure that he is elected the next Comptroller in November.”
