Fail: Texas GOP Candidate Accidentally Endorses Gay Marriage On Twitter

This post has been updated.

Texas state Sen. Dan Patrick (R) accidentally endorsed same-sex marriage in a tweet on Wednesday.

Patrick, who is running for lieutenant governor, intended to express his disapproval of a federal judge’s decision to strike down the state’s ban on gay marriage. Instead, Patrick defined marriage as between “ONE MAN & ONE MAN.”

He deleted the tweet with the typo and replaced it about 10 minutes later.

Patrick made it clear in earlier tweets that he opposes gay marriage and the Wednesday ruling.

Later on Wednesday, Patrick announced that he would be looking for some help managing his social media accounts.

Correction: This post originally included a tweet that did not come from Patrick’s verified account.
