Today begins roughly 18 months of hard work said State Senator and conservative Tea PartyCaucus FounderDanPatrickmaking the anticipated official hes running for Lieutenant Governor.
Over the past months my main focus has been my job as Senator ... so Ive had very little time to spend on the issues unique to building a campaign. But in the time we have spent and in the people we have called weve had less than a handful say anything less than Im with you 100.
I think the people of Texas sense that its time for change and 2014s going to be a change election... I believe we need authentic conservative leadership in the position of Lieutenant Governor because like everyone often says its the most powerful position in the state of Texas and I think that depends on who holds the position.
As your next Lieutenant Governor I will secure the border enforce immigration laws already on the books and put an end to sanctuary cities.For us conservatives there is so much left to be done. My wife Jan and I would be honored to have your support says Patrick in his campaigns website announcement video.
