Austin – The Republican State Leadership Committee’s (RSLC) Republican Lieutenant Governor’s Association (RLGA) named Lt. Governor Dan Patrick today to its 2016 Executive Committee. The committee joins previously announced RLGA Chairman Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch (WI) and Co-Chairman Mark Hutchison (NV) in the mission to recruit, support and elect Republican lieutenant governors and candidates in states across the country. Lt. Governor Patrick issued the following statement in response:
“I am truly honored to have been selected for the RLGA Executive Committee, particularly during such a critical election year. The RLGA has done a tremendous job of supporting strong, Republican candidates for lieutenant governor offices nationwide. I’m looking forward to working alongside the 11 other officials from across the country to promote our conservative ideals of small government, free enterprise and individual liberty at the state level.”
Lt. Governor Patrick will host the RLGA in Austin this June. This will be the first time the RLGA has ever had their meeting in Texas. This is a great opportunity for Texas businesses to share their products and services to 32 Republican Lt. Governors.
