Patrick Will Not Attend President Trump’s Acceptance Speech
HOUSTON TX – Because of the impending threat of Hurricane Laura, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick will not be attending the Republican National Convention in Washington this evening and tomorrow as planned:
“While I was deeply honored by the White House invitation to President Donald J. Trump’s acceptance speech tomorrow night, the safety of the people of Texas is always my first priority. I encourage every Texan in the path of the storm to monitor it closely. If you live in the areas that are under evacuation orders, you should do so today at the earliest possible time. This is not a storm to try and ride out. You are putting your life at risk if you ignore these orders.”
