Democrat Collier to challenge Patrick for lieutenant governor

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is getting a Democratic challenger for re-election in 2018.

The Texas Democratic Party said Thursday that Mike Collier is stepping down as finance chairman to start a campaign for lieutenant governor.

"Dan Patrick has proven he is unworthy of leading this great state," party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa said in a statement Thursday. "I am proud to see a courageous Texan like Mike Collier put his name forward to serve."

In his own statement, Collier said he is "assembling a campaign team to run against Dan Patrick for Texas Lt. Governor." He added that he will make a formal announcement after touring the state and gauging support for his run.

1. If he's a Democrat, opposing Patrick, that's all I need to know.

He's got my vote and active support.

2. I have met Mike about a dozen times

He is a really good guy and Dan Patrick is an ass. I hope that Mike wins
