Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has continued endorsing candidates for the House. 

Patrick announced his endorsement of attorney and businessman Brent Money for House District 2—a seat that was only recently filled in a special election by Jill Dutton. 

“Brent Money believes in the fight to uphold common sense Texas values that protect our faith, families, and way of life,” Patrick posted on X on Friday. 

An advocate for small government, border security, and parental rights for children, Brent is fighting to maintain Texas as the greatest state in the nation. He wants to preserve our freedoms and culture for the next generation of Texans. @brentmoney has my full endorsement and support,” added Patrick.

Patrick also endorsed Mike Olcott for House District 60. 

“Mike Olcott is a fifth generation Texan who has a proven track record of commitment to securing the Texas border,” posted Patrick. “Mike is also a conservative leader, having organized activists throughout North Texas, as well as co-founded a grassroots organization which educates and motivates Republican voters.”

“He is a strong proponent of election integrity and has recently received an endorsement from President Donald J. Trump. I am proud to give @olcott4texas my endorsement and support,” Patrick’s X post concluded. 

Olcott is challenging current State Rep. Glenn Rogers (R—Graford) for the seat.  

Last Monday, Patrick posted a list on X of Texas candidates endorsed by President Donald Trump and gave them his support.

“As Chair of the Trump Campaign for Texas for the third time, I’m proud of the candidates the President endorsed. He has given each of these candidates his full and total support,” he said. “Early voting is happening now. Go vote!”

The list includes: 

David Covey, who is challenging current State Rep. and Speaker of the Texas House Dade Phelan (R—Beaumont) for House District 21. 

Brent Hagenbuch, who is running for an open seat as current State Sen. Drew Springer (R—Muenster) chose not to run for reelection for Senate District 30. 

Helen Kerwin, who is challenging State Rep. DeWayne Burns (R—Cleburne) for House District 58. 

Alan Schoolcraft, who is challenging State Rep. John Kuempel (R—Seguin) for House District 44. 

Liz Case, who is challenging State Rep. Stan Lambert (R—Abilene) for House District 71. 

Early voting is ongoing and ends March 1. Election day is March 5.
