A Conversation with Jerry Patterson and Hector Uribe
As part of the Tribune's inaugural College Tour stop, the land commissioner of Texas and his Democratic opponent sat down side by side on the Texas Tech University campus to talk about the fate of the Christmas Mountains, coastal erosion, long-term care for veterans and the portfolio of issues that each of them wants to manage for the next four years.

Quality journalism doesn't come free
Perhaps it goes without saying — but producing quality journalism isn't cheap. At a time when newsroom resources and revenue across the country are declining, The Texas Tribune remains committed to sustaining our mission: creating a more engaged and informed Texas with every story we cover, every event we convene and every newsletter we send. As a nonprofit newsroom, we rely on members to help keep our stories free and our events open to the public. Do you value our journalism? Show us with your support.Yes, I'll donate today
