Two State Campaigns have been announced for the 2018 elections, with the first coming Saturday in Round Rock.
Former Democratic nominee for Lt. Gov. Mike Collier has issued a challenge against Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.
Collier first went for the position in 2014 against Republican Glenn Hager, and lost. A Democrat has not won a statewide office in Texas since 1994.
While some conservatives say Patrick may challenge Gov. Greg Abbot for the GOP primary, Patrick has insisted he will seek re-election, making him that race’s running favorite.
The grandson of former President George H.W. Bush and nephew of George W. Bush, George P. Bush has announce he will seek re-election as the Texas Land Commissioner for next year. It’s a little known but powerful agency.
His campaign was revealed this morning on his website, and through email to supporters.
