We recommend Mike Collier in the Democratic runoff for Texas Lt. Governor
Mike Collier is eager to talk to Republicans about property taxes.
But first, he must win the second ballot to represent the Democrats in the general election for Lieutenant Governor of Texas. In the March 1 primary, State Representative Michelle Beckley of Carrollton, 52, finished 12 points behind Collier but still called on him to drop out of the race, saying he was not inspiring the base . Collier, however, quickly consolidated support from Democratic leaders, including U.S. Representative Lizzie Fletcher, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo, and 17 of Beckley’s colleagues in the Texas House, as well as Planned Parenthood Texas Votes and Texas AFL- CIO.
