Sen. Dan Patrick’s general consultant, Allen Blakemore held a tele-conference this afternoon to discuss their victory Tuesday and the upcoming runoff. I had to laugh when Blakemore talked about Patrick winning the areas with people, eventually saying that David Dewhurst is liked by cattle and farm animals while Dan Patrick is liked by people. Ouch.
You can listen to the tele-conference below:
While we were on the call, Dr. Steve Hotze and the Conservative Republicans of Texas released a Baselice poll showing Sen. Patrick with a strong lead in the runoff.
