Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick announced on Friday that he was endorsing challengers Brent Money and Mike Olcott in their respective races for the Texas House of Representatives.

Patrick posted his endorsement of Money for House District 2 on social media, writing that Money “believes in the fight to uphold common sense Texas values that protect our faith, families, and way of life.”

“An advocate for small government, border security, and parental rights for children, Brent is fighting to maintain Texas as the greatest state in the nation. He wants to preserve our freedoms and culture for the next generation of Texans,” he continued.

Similarly, Patrick announced his endorsement of Olcott for House District 60, writing that the challenger “has a proven track record of commitment to securing the Texas border.”
