Craddick to Seek Second Term as Railroad Commissioner

Christi Craddick is seeking a second term on the Texas Railroad Commission.

The Texas Tribune reported today that Craddick announced her bid for a second term on the commission. Craddick was previously elected in 2012, defeating Democrat Dale Henry in the general election, 56 percent to 40 percent.

Craddick is currently the only Republican running for a spot on the commission. Democrat Roman McAllen, an employee of the City of Denton, is also running.

Candidates have until December to file their candidacy.
