State Sen. Dan Patrick’s tendency to “showboat” sabotaged the Legislature’s efforts to rein in a rogue public school curriculum last year and spotlighted why he is not ready to serve as lieutenant governor, incumbent David Dewhurst said Friday.

That is the message Dewhurst said he intends to use to win back Republican voters who gave him a second-place finish to Patrick in the March 4 primary.


“Dan Patrick is no Ted Cruz,” said Dewhurst. “Ted Cruz is an authentic conservative, and Dan Patrick is not. I don’t see any similarities in the two races.”

The Lite Guv isn’t getting any sympathy from me. Sen. Patrick didn’t become a “showboat” yesterday. He has been “showboating” for a number of years. The Lite Guv new he was a “showboat” when he appointed him to Chair the Senate Education Committee. Sorry pal!

The ‘Stros announced that Scott Feldman will be the Opening Day starting pitcher.
