ICYMI: Democratic Candidate for Lt. Governor Mike Collier Files for 2022 Primary Ballot

Austin, Texas — Over the weekend in Laredo, TX, Mike Collier officially filed to be on the 2022 ballot for Texas Lt. Governor. He was joined by party leaders from all across the state who endorsed his campaign earlier this month following a near $1 million advantage in fundraising and a double-digit lead across three public polls over his primary contenders. 

Collier’s choice to file for office in Laredo is a continuation of a months-long outreach effort to speak to Texas families in South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley who feel forgotten and taken for granted by lawmakers in Austin.

Texas Democratic Lt. Governor Candidate Mike Collier issued the following statement:

“Texans know that Dan Patrick has been a disaster for our state. He cares only about sound bites, never sound policy. Nearly 700 Texans died because he ignored repeated warnings about the power grid. He was ineffective in controlling the spread of COVID-19 as nearly 70,000 Texans have succumbed to the disease. And as the Texas economy struggles, Dan Patrick is more anti-business than ever.

“I’m grateful for the Democratic party leaders from all across the state who have joined our campaign to defeat the worst Lt. Governor in the nation. Defeating Dan Patrick is going to take all kinds of Texans from all kinds of backgrounds, and I look forward to working with folks from all across the Lone Star State who share our vision for a brighter Texas future.

“As I file to officially be on the ballot, here is my promise to the people of Texas: as your Lt. Governor, I will take no Texan for granted. No matter where you are in this state, I will fight to earn your trust and be a Lt. Governor worthy of a state as great as Texas.”
