Patrick, heretofore the most conservative candidate in the race -- a man who vociferously denies once showing kindness to an illegal immigrant -- expressed his support in a tweet delivered in the moments after a federal judge ruled that Texas same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional.
Now that's the kind of bold leadership we need in Austin.
