Lt. Gov. Patrick's campaign dismisses debate challenge from GOP candidate Milder

Milder says Patrick “owes his constituents an explanation” while Patrick’s camp says this is the “unmistakable gasp of an attention-starved candidate”

Former Rockwall City Councilman Scott Milder, the Republican challenger to Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, on Tuesday said the incumbent and he should share a stage to debate the issues important to Texans.

But Patrick’s campaign was quick to dismiss the notion.

“I strongly believe that Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick owes his constituents an explanation for ignoring our priorities throughout his time in office,” Milder said. “The people of Texas deserve a Lieutenant Governor who represents us, not his millionaire donors.”
