Steve Brown, Texas Railroad Commissioner

Steve Brown, a former chairman of the Fort Bend County Democratic Party and veteran of the Clinton White House, is considering a bid for Texas Railroad commissioner in 2014. Don't let the name fool you. The commission, whose name Brown will seek to change if elected, regulates the state's massive energy resources and industry. It also could be a ticket to higher, statewide office.
