Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has endorsed three more candidates for both the Texas House and the U.S. House via social media posts ahead of the 2024 primary runoff elections.

On March 7, Patrick endorsed Katrina Pierson for House District 33. She is running against incumbent State Rep. Justin Holland (R—Heath).

Pierson, a former spokesperson for former President and current projected 2024 GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, told Texas Scorecard late last year when she announced her candidacy that “[t]he Texas House has been a bottleneck for conservative priorities for too long, and it must be reformed.”

She also said, “A small group of liberal Republicans like Justin Holland have formed a coalition with Democrats to block or water down conservative priorities. Justin Holland voted to put radical Democrats in charge of key committees so they could kill conservative bills. Holland even helped put a radical Obama Administration lawyer in charge of House proceedings.”

Pierson was also endorsed by Attorney General Ken Paxton.

On March 18, Patrick endorsed Alex Kamkar for House District 29. Kamkar is running against Barry Insurance Group owner Jeffrey Barry. Kamkar was also endorsed by Gov. Greg Abbott.

For the U.S. House, Patrick endorsed incumbent U.S. Rep. Tony Gonzales (R—23) for Congressional District 23.

Gonzales was challenged for the seat by notable firearms YouTube influencer Brandon Herrera—who has over 3 million subscribers on the platform. This is over one million more since his campaign announcement at the end of last summer.

At the end of the five-way race on March 6, Gonzales won 45.08 percent of the vote while Herrera made second place with 24.66 percent.

The runoff elections are scheduled for May 28 of this year.
