Dallas, TX -- Earlier this evening, Texas Lieutenant Governor candidate Dan Patrick spoke to the Texas delegation at the Americans for Prosperity Defending the American Dream Conference:

First off, Peggy Venable of AFP Texas introduced Patrick:

  • "We are headed for trouble if we don't reign in local government spending and debt."
  • "We know in Texas we've gone a long way, but we've also got a long way to go."
  • "We have to make sure we're engaged in local politics and local policymaking also."
 Next, Senator Patrick spoke:

  • "We already have school choice in Texas: If you're rich enough you send your kid to private school, if you're mobile enough you move to the suburbs." 
  • "Nobody moves to the suburbs because they want to sit in traffic."
  • #TXSEN will kill 2/3rds rule.
  • "Last year we spent $53 billion in Texas on education."
  • Texas education spending: $38 billion in 1997, $53 billion today....
  • "If I'm Lieutenant Governor, there will not be a budget that passes the Senate without serious property tax relief, short term, medium term, and long term."
  • They owe their success to us activists!!!
