I am traveling across Texas to recognize, galvanize, and mobilize rural Texans across the state to vote RED! I have traveled to 28 cities since I began my bus tour and the fun has only just begun. I am energized and excited to travel across the state to meet rural Texans and see their beautiful communities!
Yesterday, I started off in Belton, Texas. I gave a speech on leadership to the baseball team at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. Afterward, I took to the field for some infield ground balls at second and third, as well as some pitching. It’s been 50 years since I last pitched from the mound but I have to say, I still brought the heat. I’ll have some video on that later. UMHB is a great school and these young men are great leaders on and off the field.
I then spoke at a business lunch and later to a group of 100 or so retired teachers in Bell County. Our teachers are so important in the state of Texas and I have made it a priority to take care of them, even after they have retired.
I wrapped up the day with an event in Waco with Senator Birdwell, and today I’m working in Austin. It’s been a great week!
If you see me in your town, take a picture of my campaign bus using the hashtag #PatrickBusTour22 on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and tag @DanPatrick to be entered to win a campaign gift bag and a private BBQ lunch with Jan and me! Keep a lookout for the bus – I hope to see you out on the road.
Thank you all for your support and for everything you do to keep Texas red. May God bless you and your family, and may He continue to bless the greatest state of all—Texas.
Lieutenant Governor of Texas
