New Mike Collier Ad, "CPA"
In which the Democratic candidate for state comptroller demonstrates that he's no farmer.
Mike Collier, the Democratic challenger for comptroller, goes for humor in his new ad in an attempt to contrast his professional background with that of Glenn Hegar, a Katy rice farmer, state Senator and his Republican rival for the statewide office.
After convincingly demonstrating he's no farmer, Collier goes on to say his training as a certified public accountant makes him better qualified for the job of watching over the state's finances.
He also has tied the release of his ad online with a fundraising campaign to raise money to keep the ad on the air, according to his campaign.
