In Texas, a 'primary on steroids' avoids discussing energy

WEATHERFORD, Texas -- Dan Patrick bowed his head and opened the meeting of the Parker County Tea Party with a prayer. Then he segued into the stump speech he's given throughout his campaign for lieutenant governor: "I'm a Christian first, a conservative second and a Republican third." Welcome to one of the hottest political races in Texas. Patrick, a two-term state senator from Houston, is one of three candidates trying to wrest the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor from incumbent David Dewhurst, who is seeking a fourth term.
