The four major Republican candidates for Texas Lieutenant Governor met in the first televised debate of the race last night.
Current Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst faced off against the men who want his job: Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, State Sen. Dan Patrick and Agricultural Commissioner Todd Staples.
Three of those candidates spoke out in support of teaching creationism in Texas public schools – a move that would be unconstitutional.
The debate on Waco TV station KCEN focused on border security, the role of the Tea Party in Texas politics and education.
