CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Democratic candidate for Texas Lieutenant Governor Mike Collier was in Corpus Christi today.

Collier visited the Nueces County Courthouse while campaigning to overthrow Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick.

Collier took direct aim at Patrick for his “failure to fix the Texas power grid” after last year’s deadly winter storm.

Collier also said Patrick bears the blame for Texans currently having to pay higher electric bills while constantly dealing with ERCOT’s energy conservation alerts.

“I’m traveling all over the state, excited to be in Corpus Christi, talking about how we’re fixing this damn network and we’re doing it urgently,” Patrick said.

Polling shows Collier, a former oil executive, is within striking distance of Patrick in what could be another close clash between the two.

Coastal Bend is on the list of areas he will visit, but no date has been set at this time.
