LTGOV: Rockwall public relations executive and former council member Scott Milder established a campaign committee for a potential primary challenge of Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R). Milder was first elected to council P5 in 2013 and re-elected in 2015. He lost his bid for a third term in May to Rockwall chamber president Dana Macalik, 43%-35%.
