Dan Patrick and Mayor Julian Castro Agree to Debate Border Security

HOUSTON – Yesterday, Julian Castro, Mayor of San Antonio and Dan Patrick, Texas State Senator and authentic conservative candidate for Lieutenant Governor had an exchange on Twitter:

Mayor Julián Castro@JulianCastro:

“Congratulations @DanPatrick, you are the most anti-immigrant Republican running for state office.”

Dan Patrick ‏@DanPatrick:

@juliancastro yes, I am proud to wear the badge of securing our border bc your buddy Obama created this illegal invasion

@juliancastro talk is cheap mayor, if you want to debate this in San Antonio, tell me when and I’ll be there.

Mayor Julián Castro@JulianCastro:

Let’s do that, ‪@DanPatrick . How about it, ‪@evansmith ?

Dan Patrick ‏@DanPatrick

@JulianCastro challenge accepted. Willing to fight you for the future of Texas.

“Although I appreciated Julian Castro, Obama’s handpicked acolyte, recognizing that I was the toughest candidate on border security running for state office,” said Patrick.  “I didn’t want to lose the opportunity to engage him in a more thoughtful debate on the critical issue of border security.”

After about 24 hours, Mayor Castro accepted the challenge of a debate and the details are already being worked out.

“I look forward to meeting Julian Castro in the public arena and debating the importance of border security and stopping the flow of illegal immigration in our state,” said Patrick.  “This debate isn’t just about the future of Texas, it is a fight for the future of Texas.”
