Tommy Williams opts out of Comptroller’s race

Posted: Friday, July 5, 2013 3:00 pm

State Sen. Tommy Williams announced Wednesday that he will not run for state comptroller, ending an exploratory bid that began just over a month ago.

“I am sincerely humbled by the outpouring of statewide encouragement to enter the Comptroller’s race. [His wife] Marsha and I have had to balance this political opportunity with my responsibility to the families of Southeast Texas as their State Senator,” Williams said in a media release. 

“I also feel serving as Chairman of the State Senate Finance Committee is incompatible with the demands of simultaneously running for a statewide election.”
