Rep. Dennis Bonnen: Dan Patrick Likes Grabbing Headlines, Joe Straus Focused on Getting Business Done [Interview]
Texas House District 25 Representative Dennis Bonnen (R) Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee on The Chad Hasty Show discusses SB-2, property taxes, sanctuary cities and the rivalry between Lt. Gov Dan Patrick and House Speaker Joe Straus.
Rep. Bonnen framed the rivalry between Lt. Gov. Patrick and Speaker Joe Straus as "unique," but was blunt in his comparison of the two men.
"We have a lieutenant governor [Dan Patrick] in the Senate who likes to grab the headlines, and we have a much calmer, much more statesmanlike leader in Speaker Straus, who would prefer to keep his head down and get his business done. It's not about a headline, not about if everyone knows his name, not about whether everyone is talking about the Texas House," Rep. Bonnen said.
