Lieutenant Governor Runoff Candidates Come to West Texas


Incumbent David Dewhurst has been duking it out with challenger Dan Patrick in an effort to retain his title as Lieutenant Governor of Texas. They’ve traded punches in a series of televised debates and in campaign ads.

Last week, they took their battle to the Midland, where they squared off in front of a roomful of Republican women. For KXWT News, Lana Straub has this report.
