AUSTIN -- Senator Dan Patrick announced his campaign for Texas' lieutenant governor.
See his announcement below:
“Recent events in the Texas Senate have confirmed the feeling that I have had for a while now,” said Sen. Patrick. “We need new leadership in the Lieutenant Governor’s office that is unapologetically conservative and will get results.”
Sen. Patrick continued: “The office of Lieutenant Governor is supposedly the most powerful in the state and a Republican has held it for over a decade, yet so little has been done to address border security, debt, and property tax relief. It’s time for new conservative leadership. I have the proven track record, passion and energy to get the job done.”
Patrick has served the Texas Senate for seven years.
According to a press release about his candidacy, Patrick is a small businessman who hosts a daily afternoon talk show on KSEV AM 700 in Houston and has raised over $16 million for children with disabilities through his radio station over the years. Dan has also written a best selling book, produced an award-winning movie, and plays piano and guitar in his spare time.
