A coalition of Texas lawmakers has endorsed Wayne Christian in the Republican runoff for railroad commissioner, Christian's campaign announced Wednesday. 

The list includes state Sen. Donna Campbell, of New Braunfels, along with 16 state representatives. Two Republican nominees for House seats have also endorsed Christian, a former state representative, according to his campaign (See the full list below.).

"Wayne Christian is a conservative champion who has fought to shrink the size of government, advance liberty and protect the rights of Texans,” Campbell said in a news release. 

The endorsements come one day after the commission's Chairman Barry Smitherman announced his support of Ryan Sitton, Christian's opponent in the Republican runoff. Christian led Sitton by 12 percentage points in the initial balloting last month.
