Dan Patrick Receives Endorsement of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility
Patrick’s Patriots expands grassroots support from across Texas

HOUSTON – The Dan Patrick for Lt. Governor campaign picked up a major endorsement from conservative grassroots organization, Texans for Fiscal Responsibility.

“Texans for Fiscal Responsibility enthusiastically endorses Dan Patrick for Lieutenant Governor. In Dan Patrick, Texans will have a proven taxpayer champion who has established a clear record of working to advance the conservative fiscal policies that protect taxpayers and enhance prosperity in the Lone Star State.

During his tenure in the Senate, Mr. Patrick has consistently been one of the top-rated lawmakers on the Fiscal Responsibility Index. He has established a record of advocating for practical, reform-minded policies supported by Texans, even if opposed by the special interests in Austin.

For example, 94 percent of Republican primary voters said on their May 2012 ballot that they wanted strict, constitutional spending limits enacted. While the House refused to consider the measure, Mr. Patrick successfully authored and moved legislation doing just that out of Senate Finance.

Similarly, Mr. Patrick has been at the forefront of fights to reform the state’s out-of-control property taxes and business tax schemes. Meanwhile, he has kept a tight focus on the need for substantive spending reform, especially in education, to ensure tax dollars are well spent for their intended purposes,” Michael Quinn Sullivan, President, Texans for Fiscal Responsibility.
