LUBBOCK, Texas -

Drew Landry, a professor at South Plains College, is the Democratic challenger to state Rep. Dustin Burrows (R-District 83) in the midterm election. Landry, who's provided political analysis for FOX34 in the past, said Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick's leadership is one of the greatest issues facing Texans.

A guest on the News@Nine, Landry said -- if elected -- he will openly oppose Patrick and his legislative agenda.

"Dan Patrick has been the absolute worst thing when it comes to our public education," Landry said. "He has really just brought out an all-out assault on our public schools, on our public school teachers, and even our retired teachers.

"This state, and even this country, is facing a teacher shortage because of the lack of respect being given to our retired teachers and our current teachers," he continued. "The question is 'who wants to get into this profession being treated like this?' And I don't blame them."

Landry said health care access is also a priority for him, focusing on the state's rural hospitals.

Landry's full interview is attached to the top of this story.

Early voting begins Oct. 22, and Election Day is Nov. 6.
