Patterson, Declining to Run for Commission, Knocks Trump (in 2014 he knocked Nativist Axis) (TX)

Former Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson is not running for state railroad commissioner, and he suggests that Donald Trump has something to do with that.

Patterson was one of several high-profile Republicans flirting late last week with a bid for David Porter’s open seat on the three-member Texas Railroad Commission, which regulates oil and gas production.

But he removed himself from that discussion on Monday, saying he “has better things to do,” in a statement that also expressed disdain for Trump’s presidential ambitions.

Ralph Hall, Patterson, Dewhurst were the first victims of the Tea Party in 2014.

"Well, except Patterson, I guess. He seems to be the only candidate in this race that supports another amnesty bill. Because history won’t repeat itself, right?"

Patterson said. "Telling Trump supporters that they should vote for Jerry Patterson while simultaneously opining that anybody who votes for Trump is an idiot is not a good formula for success."
