AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Houston businessman Mike Collier has clinched the Democratic nominee for Texas comptroller.

Collier had no primary challenger Tuesday night and will be a heavy underdog in November. He never has held elected office and no Democrat has won a statewide race in 20 years.

Republican Comptroller Susan Combs didn't seek re-election. She had drawn criticism from members of both parties over revenue projections that underestimated state spending power.
