Democrat Mike Collier launches campaign for Texas lieutenant governor

Texas Democrat Mike Collier on Tuesday launched his 2022 campaign for lieutenant governor, setting up a rematch from his 2018 race against incumbent Republican Dan Patrick.

Collier, who worked in the energy sector and was a top adviser to President Biden’s campaign in Texas, came within 5 points of unseating Patrick three years ago.

1. This is fantastic! If anyone can take down Dan Patrick, it's Mike Collier
