It seems as though I am not the only person with that opinion.
Dan Patrick has easily gained the most Tea Party support of any candidate in the race.
Did you know that Dan Patrick has also gained an enormous amount of support from the Minority Community?
Minorities are actually very conservative in their beliefs. The problem is that the liberal Democrats have brainwashed them into believing that Republicans are bad.
The amount of support from the minority community that Dan Patrick has gained is very good and very important.
The following press release is from Dan Patrick and it goes into more detail about the support that Patrick is getting from the minority community:
Dan Patrick Expands Support in Minority Community
Wins Hispanic straw poll and endorsed by African American outreach leader
HOUSTON – Dan Patrick, the authentic conservative candidate for Lt. Governor, has received 24 TEA party endorsements because of his strong fiscal and socially conservative record. His message of prioritizing border security, cutting property taxes and reforming our public schools has resonated with the conservative voters. This message has also produced support from the minority community.
Today Dan Patrick received the endorsement of Bill Calhoun, Chairman, Texas Federation for Republican Outreach*. Mr. Calhoun is a long serving leader in the Texas Republican Party and has been appointed as a delegate to the White House Conference on Small Business by both President Reagan and President Clinton. He was also appointed to the Texas Advisory Committee of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights by President George W. Bush. His endorsement of Dan Patrick is largely based on their mutual desire to improve public education and provide more choice options.
“Everything that's wrong with public school education in Texas is a result of the Democrat's social policies. For African American and Hispanic students, it has become a social atrocity that must be stopped! School choice is a very important tool to give parents who are struggling with trying to get their children out of a low-performing school and put them on a pathway to prosperity. Now is the time to give it to them. Dan Patrick has been the undisputed champion of School Choice and he will get a bill passed in the senate. That is why I'm supporting him.”
Last week, Republican Hispanic Citizens in Action met and heard from the candidates for Lt. Governor. At the end of the meeting, the attendees voted in a straw poll and supported Dan Patrick over the other candidates. The Republican Hispanic Citizens In Action (RHCIA) is Houston’s most active and fastest growing Republican Hispanic organization. For more than four years RHCIA has been building a foundation of committed individuals interested in conservative government and promoting Republican candidates.
