Too ex­treme for N. Tex­ans

The Dallas Morning News - - World / From The Front Page -

Re: “Pa­trick: Bath­room fight is ‘set­tled’ and ‘we won’ — Com­ment comes even though con­tro­ver­sial bill died,” Thurs­day news story.

Lt. Gov. Dan Pa­trick must have a very dif­fer­ent def­i­ni­tion of win­ning than I do. Not only did the bath­room bill not even come up for a vote in the Texas House last term, but the fol­low­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tives or can­di­dates who sup­ported Pa­trick’s ex­trem­ist bath­room bill — Matt Ri­naldi, Don Huffines, Lisa Luby Ryan, Konni Bur­ton and Ron Sim­mons — all lost in the Nov. 6 gen­eral elec­tion.

Pa­trick and his co­hort are prov­ing that their brand of social con­ser­vatism is far too ex­treme for North Tex­ans. By the time the next elec­tion cy­cle rolls around, it may prove it­self to be too ex­treme for all Tex­ans. Howard Klion, Dal­las
