NBC Sports commentator Dan Patrick isn't in the running for lieutenant governor of Texas, but someone at a local TV station apparently thought so.

Dan Patrick might become Texas’ next Lieutenant Governor.

For you sports fans, it’s not the same Dan Patrick. But someone in a Lubbock, Texas television station newsroom apparently thought so.

Sister stations KLBK-TV and KAMC-TV aired election results Tuesday night with a graphic of the wrong Dan Patrick.

That’s right, instead of the Texas state senator Dan Patrick, the news stations had a photo of the NBC sportscaster.

Other stations across Texas didn’t make the same mistake.
