Dan Patrick Expresses Great Disappointment With Joe Straus [VIDEO]
Monday on The Chad Hasty Show, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick joined the program as he talked about the special session, and the disappointment he has with House Speaker, Joe Straus.
During the interview, Hasty asked Patrick about the next legislative session and if a conservative agenda can be passed if Joe Straus remains Speaker of the House. While answering that question, Patrick said:
It is difficult but the Governor and I, the Texas Senate and we have a very conservative Texas senate, and we did our job, we passed all 30 of our conservative priorities during the regular session and about half got to the Governor's desk and we passed again eighteen of the Governor's agenda items and about half got passed to the Governor. So what we need is Governor Abbott as Governor, myself as Lt. Governor to fight against the speaker if he (Straus) is still the speaker.
