On the Thursday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Wayne Christian, Republican candidate for Railroad Commissioner, talked with Chad Hasty about his campaign and why he chose to enter the race.

Christan said that while most people don't pay attention to the Texas Railroad Commissioner's race, it's actually one of the most important races out there and called it a "backdoor fight" for Democrats. He explained that while everyone else is focused on the Democrats efforts to turn Texas blue, the Obama administration plans to use the office of Railroad Commissioner to turn Texas green by shutting down the oil, gas and coal industries in Texas.

Christian added that these industries are what make Texas so great and help keep Texas independent from the government, and he vowed to fight against the federal government's attempts to shut down these industries.

"...because we've had the consistent inflow of oil, gas and liquid nitrogen for decades and decades in this state, and the oil booms in the early 1900's, the story of the Ewings on television and where they came form, that Texas and that's what's made us very different from other states. But we are under threat form a president that wants everything but oil, gas and liquid nitrogen in this country."

Christian also spoke about fracking in Texas. He said that he knows many citizens are very concerned about the effects of fracking and that he aims to represent the citizens' best interests. However, eh also added that, to his knowledge, fracking has not been proven to be dangerous.
