Oklahoma: The Race For Governor

Oklahomans will elect a new leader this fall.  There are four major candidates who want to be the state’s CEO. Recently, I interviewed each of them:

  • Attorney General Drew Edmondson
  • U.S. Representative Mary Fallin
  • Lt. Governor Jeri Askins
  • State Senator Randy Brogdon.

I asked each the same questions, including:

  • What motivates you to be governor?
  • What are your top 3 issues you’ll attack right away as governor?
  • Oklahoma is constantly near the bottom in rankings when it comes to so many things. What’s your sales pitch to the nation when people see that?
  • What are your thoughts on: education funding, abortion, immigration, tea party movement, legalizing marijuana?
  • What experience do you have that qualifies you to run the state?

Want to see how they responded? NewsChannel 8 has put the interviews up on its website, ktul.com. Here’s the link.
