Officially joining Sen. Wendy Davis, Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, Sam Houston, John Cook, and Mike Collier on your statewide Democratic ticket is former Fort Bend County Chairman Steve Brown. Steve Brown cruised past perennial candidate Dale Henry with 63.92% of the vote.
Two Republicans will advance into a May runoff, Former State Rep. Wayne Christian and energy executive Ryan Sitton. Incumbent Barry Smitherman finished in third place while running for Texas Attorney General.
Read Steve Brown's victory press release and hear my interview with our nominee for Railroad Commissioner from last fall after the jump.
Thanks to your support and encouragement we won the Democratic Nomination for Texas Railroad Commissioner last night! I'd also like to thank Dale Henry for his commitment to improving the Railroad Commission. Both he and I agree that we have to change the culture of cronyism there and make sure the public remains safe and protected.
We're going to need you now more than ever as we prepare to win in November. No Democrat has won a spot on this Commission in 20 years. However, I feel strongly that our message of ensuring that the public has an advocate there will resonate with all Texas voters.
Please chip in $5, $10 or $20 today. Thank you again!
