Patrick Ad Hits Dewhurst Over Negative Campaign

The latest television spot from Dan Patrick, the Republican lieutenant governor hopeful, goes after incumbent David Dewhurst for running a negative campaign — and voting to expand benefits for undocumented immigrants. The pair are competing ahead of a May 27 Republican runoff. “David Dewhurst has thrown everything at me except the kitchen sink,” Patrick says as a sink is tossed to him from off-screen.
