Update: Because the Azimuth poll targeted registered Republicans and “highly aware” GOP voters, questions have arisen over its scientific accuracy.” This kind of polling is generally considered less accurate and more partisan and may have skewed results.

Texas Railroad Commissioner Michael Williams told The Associated Press he’s planning to resign from his current position April 2 to enter the 2012 race for the U.S. Senate.

Williams started his career in the Commission in 1998 when he was appointed by then-Governor George W. Bush. His biography also introduces him as “the first African American in Texas history to hold an executive statewide elected post.”
