HOUSTON (FOX 26) - Incumbent Dan Patrick handily defeated Republican primary opponent Scott Milder and will face Democratic primary winner Mike Collier in the general election for Texas Lieutenant Governor in November.
Lt. Governor Patrick released the following statement on Texas primary election night:
This is a great night for the people of Texas. The victories we are seeing tonight demonstrate that without a doubt, when it comes to liberty and freedom, border security, property tax relief, protection of the second amendment, protecting life and religious liberties, Texans won’t back down.
There have been great victories across the state — the re-election of some great senators — and two new Republicans are well on their way to joining their fellow conservatives in the Texas Senate. The GOP platform planks also confirm what we knew all along — the conservative majority supports our conservative legislative agenda.
