OK Corporation Commis. Jeff Cloud (R) said today that he has started raising cash for a race to replace outgoing Rep. Mary Fallin (R), and “will make a formal announcement within weeks.” Cloud said he “can no longer sit back and watch the deterioration of our country being wrought” by Pres. Obama, Speaker Nancy Pelosi “and the other liberals supposedly representing Americans.”
State Rep. Mike Thompson (R), ex-state Rep. Kevin Calvey (R), ‘06 candidate/urologist Johnny Roy (R), youth counselor/prof. James Lankford (R) and Ricky Flanigan (R) are already in the race (Casteel, Oklahoman, 10/15).
