The Glenn Hegar campaign was first out of the gate Tuesday among statewide candidates with its announcement of fundraising results for the first three weeks of January.
Hegar, a Republican state Senator from Katy running for Comptroller, raised $262,000 and had $2.7 million cash on hand as of Jan. 23, according to the campaign.
Texas candidates have until Feb. 3 to report their fundraising from Jan. 1 to Jan. 23.
Hegar is running against state Rep. Harvey Hilderbran, R-Kerrville, former gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina and former state Rep. Raul Torres for the Republican nomination for Comptroller. The winner will face Democrat Mike Collier in November.
