Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick: No Surprise No Primary Challengers for GOP Senators
“These senators told the people of their districts what they were going to do — and they did it — which is why no one is challenging them.”
HOUSTON TX – Lt. Governor Dan Patrick issued this statement today after the filing deadline for the 2020 Election Ballot confirmed that no Republican State Senator has a challenger in the March Primary Election:
“It is no surprise that no Republican State Senator has a challenger in the 2020 Primary Election. The hard work of the Republican Senators on the ballot — Pete Flores, Bryan Hughes, Brandon Creighton, Larry Taylor, Jane Nelson, Lois Kolkhorst, Brian Birdwell, Dawn Buckingham and Charles Perry — demonstrates what principled conservatives can do. Together we have ensured that Texans will pay lower property taxes going forward and the school finance system has finally been transformed, raising pay for teachers for the first time in four decades and cutting Robin Hood in half. We passed 29 of my 30 conservative priorities in the last session and have protected life, liberty and religious freedom, free speech and our Second Amendment rights. We have never wavered in supporting a secure border. These senators told the people of their districts what they were going to do — and they did it — which is why no one is challenging them. I will be working hard to help them defeat their Democrat challengers in November.”
Lt. Governor Patrick is not on the ballot in 2020 but he has announced that he will be running for re-election in 2022.
