Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick tested positive last week for COVID-19 but didn’t tell Texas right away

Patrick’s office said he tested positive for COVID-19 last week and experienced mild symptoms but has since tested negative.

"Senate Bill 7 is about voter security, not about voter suppression, and I'm tired of the lies and the nest of liars who continue to repeat them," said Patrick.
