Texas Railroad Commissioner Candidate Wayne Christian Discusses Opponent’s “Negative Campaign” Against Him [AUDIO]

On the Thursday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Wayne Christian, candidate for Texas Railroad Commissioner, spoke with Chad Hasty about his campaign.

Christian appeared to be confident about his chances of winning the runoff election for Texas Railroad Commissioner. He said that his opponent, Ryan Sitton, seems to also think Christian will win, and has resorted to a negative campaign against him. Christian called his opponent’s efforts particularly sad because he doesn’t have a majority base of support anywhere in Texas.

“Now [Sitton's] got his sleeves rolled up, his tie off, and he’s out shaking hands and showing up at events cause all of a sudden, he saw “Goodness. This isn’t working.” And that’s the way it works, you know. He’s trying to gain ground…but what’s sad is to see people use negative campaigning. And that happens because when you have somebody ahead of you and you can’t raise your own numbers up, you have to beat the leader down. And that’s what happening to me.”

Christian also pointed out that Sitton’s election could cause a conflict of interest. He explained that Sitton’s company, PinnacleAIS, is an oil and gas engineering firm, and that if Sitton were elected, he could use his power as railroad commissioner to regulate his clients. Christian added that the Texas Railroad Commissioner’s office deals with so much more than just oil and gas, and that Sitton was strictly an oil and gas guy.

Christan also spoke about fracking, and the possibility of Denton banning the practice altogether, calling the idea of banning fracking “insane.”
