The Rio Grande Guardian, a publication that I have never heard of nor has a Wikipedia page, but for some reason was culled for the Tribune brief, has an interesting article about yet another candidate for the Comptrollers’ race.
Raul Torres, the former one-term State Representative and unsuccessful candidate for the State Senate, is officially throwing his hat into the ring. Torres, in an interview with this “newspaper,” stated: “I think South Texas needs serious representation in Austin. I believe this campaign, because of my background and because of my business experience, makes me the most qualified candidate out there to head this agency, this department for the state. I believe it is our race to lose because of that.”
This puts Senator Glenn Hegar, Debra Medina and Torres in the “definitely” category. Meanwhile, Senator Tommy Williams and Representative Harvey Hildenbran are “maybes.” It’s going to be a crowded field.
