Dan Patrick Receives Endorsement from State-Wide Conservative Leader: Peggy Venable

AUSTIN –Dan Patrick, authentic conservative candidate for Lieutenant Governor, is proud to announce his newest endorsement from conservative leader Peggy Venable.

Peggy Venable was the first White House Liaison for the U.S. Department of Education under President Ronald Reagan when “A Nation At Risk” was conceived.  Later in the Administration, she served at the US Department of the Interior, where she directed the “Take Pride in America” grassroots campaign, which encompassed eight federal agencies and included national spokesmen Clint Eastwood, Charles Bronson and Lou Gossett, Jr.

Peggy worked at the Republican National Committee as Meetings and Convention Director and served as Executive Director of the Republican National Convention for President Reagan’s re-nomination in 1984.

For 20 years, Peggy has directed conservative grassroots organizations in Texas and is a leading advocate for transparency in government.

“I applaud the work of legislative leaders who have helped moved Texas into the enviable position we are in today. The next decade will be a defining period in the history of the Lone Star State.  The future of our children – and all Texans to follow – depends on policy decisions made regarding critical issues. I am looking to new leadership to embrace creative approaches which will not bankrupt our children’s future but will allow all Texans the opportunity to achieve the American dream.” -Peggy Venable

“I am very humbled to have the support of Peggy Venable, a longtime conservative champion for Texas and our nation,” said Patrick. “Her leadership and support was an important part of my success as a conservative leader in the Texas Senate and will continue to serve me well in the Lt. Governor’s office.”

Peggy Venable joins many other state-wide conservative leaders endorsing Dan Patrick  including Allan Parker, The Justice Foundation*, Michelle Smith, Concerned Women for America*, Jonathan Saenz, Texas Values*, Tim Lambert, Texas Home School Coalition PAC, Kelly Shackelford, The Liberty Institute* and Michael Quinn Sullivan, Texas for Fiscal Responsibility.
