TX: 7 Running for Seat with State’s Oil and Gas Industry Regulator

Fuel Fix reports that “Monday was the deadline for candidates seeking political office in Texas to file paperwork for their campaigns. Among them were seven candidates who announced they were running for a seat on the Railroad Commission, the state’s top oil and gas industry regulator.”  

“The position will be left vacant after David Porter, the Republican chairman of the commission who was first elected in 2010, said last week that he would not seek reelection.”  

“The group of challengers seeking Porter’s old spot include four Republicans and three Democrats.”
