Democratic Mike Collier officially launched a second attempt by Lieutenant Governor of Texas on Monday. The race also includes Matthew Dowd, a former Bush campaign strategist.
Accountant Collier, who lost 4.8 percentage points to Republican Vice-Governor Dan Patrick in 2018, officially entered a few months after forming the exploration campaign, but revealed that he intends to do another run. I made it.
Collier said he has raised more than $ 1 million so far and both he and Daud have begun without attacking each other. This is Collier’s third bid for offices throughout the state after running for Comptroller in 2014.
Daud, the former chief strategy officer of Republican President George W. Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign, announced in September that he would run for Democrat as vice-governor.
Democrats are still waiting for a candidate for governor, but former House member Beto O’Rourke said he was considering running. Since 1994, no Democrat has won a state-wide office in Texas.
