Texas Comptroller Susan Combs Will Not Seek Reelection

Texas Comptroller’s Office

Texas’ comptroller will not run for reelection next year.

Texas Comptroller Susan Combs announced Wednesday that she will not run for the position again in 2014.

The 68-year-old Comptroller has served in the position since 2007, and previously held the positions of Agriculture Commissioner and state representative from Austin.

Combs said that she plans to spend more time on her family’s ranch, but will stay actively engaged in policy work.

In a statement issued Wednesday, Combs said, “In the summer of 1994, I marched up Congress Avenue with hundreds of Texans in support of private property rights – and I’m not done marching!”

Texas Governor Rick Perry issued a statement as well, saying “A major proponent of openness in government, she leaves behind a legacy of transparency, and a state that’s more responsive, more accessible, and more accountable to the public.”

Combs had been reportedly considering a run for lieutenant governor in 2014, but has said that she will not seek any office in 2014.

State Representative Harvey Hilderbran of Kerrville is reportedly considering running for the Comptroller’s position.
