Texas RR Commissioner Candidate Goes Semi Nude on TikTok to Attract Votes
Ever heard the saying "all is fair in love and war... and politics?" Apparently that means anything goes while running for office.
Who Is Sarah Stogner?
Sarah Stogner is a Republican candidate running for Texas Railroad Commissioner, and one way she is getting attention and shining light on her concerns is with a campaign ad that features her channeling Lady Godiva and going topless in her underwear and seminude.
Vote for Pedro
Stogner is a formidable candidate who has recently polled as high as second place. She even briefly picked up the endorsement of the the 4th largest newspaper in Texas, The San Antonio Express-News. They withdrew their endorsement after the video came out.
Stogner says the purpose of the ad is to draw more attention to the March 1 primary. Stogner has certainly brought more attention, good or bad, to the Railroad Commissioner's race than any previous candidate.
Watch the Sarah Stogner TikTok Video
CBS7 reports that the video, which was originally posted to TikTok, has over 60,000 views on Twitter. It features Stogner topless and riding a pumpjack in her underwear.
Stogner has certainly drawn the attention of plenty of people, and tells CBS7, “I’ve been jumping up and down for years trying to do it the traditional way of being nice and proper, wearing my Sunday School dress, and saying would Jesus want us to let our groundwater be polluted, and no one seemed to listen or care.”
Shocking Video, Strong Message
Stogner is campaigning on cleaning up water in West Texas and giving landowners more of a voice in the operations of oil and gas, among other things. She says she's aware that she is doing things differently and that poses a threat to the status quo, and now that she has your attention, it's time to get dressed and talk about the issues.
In Case You Didn't Know
The Railroad Commission has been given the task of making sure that natural gas plants get properly winterized following the disaster we experienced in Texas with last year's winter storm, which knocked out power to most of the state.
