A local Austin political blog suggested that Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) might be considering developing a campaign to challenge Sen. John Cornyn in the 2020 Republican primary. Similar rumors surrounded Patrick two years ago in conjunction with a potential 2018 primary challenge to Gov. Greg Abbott. At that time, Mr. Patrick quickly ended such speculation when he responded by publicly endorsing the Governor for re-election. Now, the Lt. Governor again finds himself immediately quashing rumors about running for another office, saying he has no intention of challenging Sen. Cornyn.
