“Dan Patrick has basically come out swinging, …including insinuating that Joe Straus only won previous elections because Democrats were involved,” Ramshaw says. “This week, Joe Straus has fired back in some of his own interviews. He has basically called the Senate budget with Dan Patrick at the helm ‘full of tricks.'”
