Years before the Formula One racetrack agreement became public knowledge in Central Texas, state Comptroller Susan Combs was a strong supporter. Yet on Nov. 15, 2011, she hit the brakes: Texas would not disburse $25 million in advance of the first race, she announced.

We put her statement through PolitiFact’s Flip-O-Meter. Did Combs do a high-speed turn?

Our sense is that while Combs has her reasons for the shift in position, it's a Full Flop, nevertheless.
