Collier first Democrat for statewide office

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A Houston businessman has become the first Democrat to announce for statewide office. He's running for state comptroller in 2014.

Mike Collier said on his website Friday that his experiences as a businessman and financial professional make him the perfect candidate to take charge of the state's bank accounts.

He promised to bring more transparency to the office currently held by Susan Combs, who is retiring next year.

Collier is the first Democrat to announce they are running for statewide office. A Democrat hasn't won statewide since 1994. Democratic leaders have said more candidates will likely announce once Forth Worth Sen. Wendy Davis decides whether to run for governor. She's promised an announcement after Labor Day.

Three Republicans are competing for their party's nomination in the March 4 primary.
