Oklahoma Republicans Getting Fired Up to Take Democrat seats

With Democrat State Senator Richard Lerblance bowing out of next race, Oklahoma republicans are backing GOP Larry Boggs to win the seat in next election in District 7.

Also, Oklahoma republicans are just down right excited about their slate of GOP candidates to take democrat Dan Boren US Congressional seat (2nd district).

At this Oklahoma GOP event, we watched a televised Oklahoma Congressional debate moderated by Oklahoma’s Lieutenant Governor Todd Lamb, in 6 GOP candidates participated.  The 6 GOP candidates aiming to take Democrat Dan Boren seat are:  Dustin Rowe, George Faught, Markwayne Mullin, Wayne Pettigrew, Dakota Woods and Dwayne Thompson.  http://www.georgefaught.com  http://www.mullinforcongress.com   http://www.pettrigrewuscongress.com  http://www.roweforcongress.us  http://www.dwaynethompson.org

This republican event was held in McAlester, Oklahoma in conference room of Angel’s Diner on January 31, 2012.  A lot of folks showed up .. it was standing room only!

Person I interviewed for this video is Lonnie Anderson – A GOP coordinator involved in local GOP party.

Oklahoma GOP Dustin Rowe “Called by God” 2 run 4 US Congress says his uncle


The uncle of Dustin Rowe said that Rowe went to the church & kneeled before the altar asking Jesus for direction about his intent to run for US Congress.   He indicated that Rowe running for this congressional seat is a “Calling from God”.

Dustin Rowe is a country lawyer practicing in Tishomingo, Oklahoma & former mayor of that town.   Though he has not officially thrown his hat in the ring & he’s expected to make announcement of his decision by end of July or sometime by middle of August.   He spoke at the Pittsburg County GOP meeting on July 21, 2011 at Angels Diner in McAlester, Oklahoma.

The seat that Rowe is potentially seeking is currently held by Democrat Dan Boren in congressional district 2.  Although, Oklahoma is an anti-Obama republican conservative state, district 2 is the only district in the entire state that is democrat.   Boren will not seek reelection in 2012, so that makes this seat wide open.
