A Tsunami of Death
Biden and Mayorkas are turning a WILLFUL blind eye to the border crisis. They are lying to the American people and ignoring the human pain – the suffering and the death – that is happening all over the country, every single day. Their inaction is despicable.
I joined Fox & Friends on Sunday morning to talk about this and more. Click here to watch.
Footage from my Texas Bus Tour
As most of you know, I kicked off our 131-city bus tour across rural Texas last week. Here’s a short video of me traveling around the state – you can click here to watch.
Speaking to the Cy-Fair Republican Women
I am still traveling across the state. On Friday, we went to a big rally in Hays County and then traveled back to Houston for a sold-out event in Cypress with the Cy-Fair Republican Women. Great food and great fun!
Speaking at the Texas State Guard Leaders Conference
On Saturday night, I traveled to College Station to speak to around 400 of our great State Guard volunteers. The State Guard is a wonderful organization made up of over 1,800 Texans – they are our volunteer civilian soldiers that help keep Texas safe.
A member of the State Guard said to me, “my mom, Nancy, is going to be so jealous, she would love to meet you!” We tried to FaceTime her but there was no answer, so l left Nancy a voicemail!
Battleship Texas on the Move this Week
Earlier Saturday, I visited the Battleship Texas on one of its last days at San Jacinto.
U.S.S. Texas was built in 1914. The last of its kind has been docked at San Jacinto Battlefield since April 1948. This week it will be towed to Galveston dry dock for major repairs. It has an unbelievable history. She saw action in WWI and WWII. Amazingly with all of its battles in the Pacific and Atlantic, only one sailor was killed in battle in 34 years of service. She had up to 1,800 crew on board.
As Lt. Governor, I have led the way to make funding this historic ship repair and move a priority, as I have done for the Alamo. We must preserve our great history for current and future generations.
This was a sick bay on the ship. The movie Pearl Harbor shot scenes here.

The two sinks were known as “scuttlebutts,” where soldiers talked about the daily news.
The ammo used for the Oerlikon guns that fired 450 rounds a minute. They had 44 on the ship. They would reload the drum every 10 seconds.
On the Road Again…
If you see me in your town, take a picture of my campaign bus using the hashtag #PatrickBusTour22 on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and tag @DanPatrick to be entered to win a campaign gift bag and a private BBQ lunch with me and Jan! Keep a lookout for the bus – I hope to see you out on the road
Thank you all for your support and for everything you do to keep Texas red. May God bless you and your family, and may He continue to bless the greatest state of all—Texas.
Lieutenant Governor of Texas
