Interview with Mark Thompson

Well, I thought I was done with interviews for this cycle, then an opportunity to chat with Mark Thompson, the Democratic candidate for Railroad Commissioner presented itself, and I was able to get it done. Thompson was not who I expected would be the nominee to oppose incumbent Michael Williams, but he's worked hard and traveled all around the state on a tight budget to talk to voters about who he is and why he's running. He's even managed to put an ad on TV in some markets, and just announced an endorsement from 2006 gubernatorial candidate Kinky Friedman. We had a nice conversation, though as we were not in a particularly quiet place, there is some background noise. As always, let me know what you think.
