MIDLAND - The Democratic Candidate for Texas Railroad Commissioner made a stop off in the basin on Monday to discuss what he believes is harming the industry.

Jeff Weems, who's from Houston, spoke at the Midland International Airport to gain support.

He believes his 35-year-background and knowledge of the oil and gas industry will put him above his opponents.

Most of all, Weems says there are no political issues in the railroad industry, what matters is keeping the business strong.
