With just over a month to go until early voting begins, Rep. Harvey Hilderbran has launched the first statewide television ad in the Republican primary race for comptroller.
In the 30-second spot, Hilderbran promises to re-institute reports on state spending and efficiency, known as performance reviews. The Legislative Budget Board is currently in charge of issuing such reviews, known as Government Effectiveness and Efficiency Reports, but the task used to fall under the comptroller’s office.
“The private sector monitors cost every day. It’s high time state government did the same,” Hilderbran says in the ad.
Hilderbran is running for comptroller against three other Republican candidates: Glenn Hegar, Debra Medina and Raul Torres. The winner of the primary will face off against Democrat Mike Collier, who is running unopposed.
