Senator Dan Patrick Says Lieutenant Governer’s Race Has Become Two-Man Race [AUDIO]
On the Tuesday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Senator Dan Patrick spoke with Chad Hasty about his campaign for Texas Lieutenant Governor.
Patrick appeared confident in his campaign, saying that the race has essentially boiled down to a two-man race between himself and the incumbent Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst. Although Dewhurst is polling higher at the moment, Patrick encouraged voters to take a look at both of their records, and was confident that his record would prove his dedication to conservative values.
"People have looked at the record. And when they look at the record, they say Dan is the conservative in this race, and has been a conservative leader. So they have come to our support. We have...90 plus percent of all the Tea Party groups, the major ones and the conservative groups and leaders in the state. And that's because they looked at the record, and I appreciate that because you work hard for your conservative voting record."
One of the major issues Patrick will focus on, if elected, is illegal immigration, and it is also his most hotly contested issue. Patrick explained that between the years of 2006 and 2012, over 1 million illegal immigrants were captured, but nearly 4 million more illegal immigrants managed to get in to the country, and that was unacceptable. He added that many people, such as San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and various left-leaning newspapers, have criticized his stance on border security, but Patrick refuses to budge on the issue.
