"Isn't it about time we elected political leaders who have sense enough not to pee on electric fences," he says to the camera.
Sledge, an oil and gas industry lawyer, has pledged to fight against President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) if elected to a seat on the commission. He recently spoke of the "relentless assault" by the EPA on the oil and gas industry at a forum organized by the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers, reported The Texas Tribune.
Texas political blog, Burnt Orange Report, points out that Sledge isn't the first candidate vying for a spot on the commission to put out a less-than conventional political ad.
Railroad Commission hopeful Warren Chisum's campaign came out with a thirty-second spot earlier this year that features the candidate on horseback, while a narrator touts his ability to "stand up" to President Obama and the EPA.
