Mike Collier, democratic nominee for Texas lieutenant governor, has accepted FOX 26 Houston's invitation to debate Lt. Governor Dan Patrick before the November election.
"Well I'm delighted to have been invited to debate," Collier said. "You know, the lieutenant governor is arguably the most powerful position in the state, and in our state we have real problems, education, property taxes, healthcare, you name it. So I think that we owe it to Texans to come out and present our views and debate one another. So I'm delighted to have been invited to debate. I'm delighted to accept."
FOX 26 Houston extended the invitation to host a debate to both Patrick and Collier, as with other important races across the state.
Lt. Governor Dan Patrick has not yet responded to FOX 26 Houston's invitation.
