Since when does being a Baptist Preacher became a disqualifier to be US Senate candidate ?

Regardless of my political affiliation & advocacy for marijuana legalization, I REFUSE to attack Lankford’s Christian faith.  As a daughter of a baptist preacher & raised in a Christian home, I fail to see how Rep. James Lankford being a Baptist preacher disqualifies him for the office of US Senator. There may be other issues I may disagree with GOP US Senate candidate Lankford on, but his being a baptist preacher is NOT 1 of them. Actually, its a plus in his favor so far as I’m concerned. To attack this man’s works in the ministry does not set well with me.

James Lankford is the GOP nominee for US Senate to fill the seat vacated by Tom Coburn.  His opponent is Connie Johnson, who is the Democrat nominee.   Date of general election in Oklahoma is November 4, 2014.

Rob Wallace (D-OK) “Nobody in Washington is going to intimidate me .. I’ll go toe-to-toe”

Rob Wallace (OK-D) for US Congress said SE Oklahomans need to send someone to capital hill who knows how to go toe-to-toe, as he has the experience in dealing w/the worst people imaginable. Wallace said that NOBODY in Washington is going to intimidate him.   He also said that the political system has been a system of hired voices, & further indicated that regular folks don’t have the bucks to hire K-street lobbyist to carry their voice.

Wallace said the system has become a set of members who only listens to hired voices.  Therefore, the only way for people in SE Oklahoma to get heard, he added, was for them to send someone from this area who will stand up to the special interest.

The moderator’s question posed to Rob Wallace was:”Gridlock is clogging up Capital Hill & with the 2 major parities often polarized to the detriment of the nation as a whole, and as a freshman US Representative what can you do to try to break down the lock jam that often occurs on capital hill?”.

Robert (Rob) Wallace, a democrat & Former Assistant US Attorney General is running for the office of US congress (2nd congressional district Oklahoma). His opponent is Marywayne Mullin — a republican & local plumber. The seat they both seek was held by democrat Dan Boren who is retiring & have held that seat since 2005. US Congressional district 2 of Oklahoma is the only democrat district in the entire state. Therefore, its imperative that the democrats hold on to that district, as the republicans are trying to turn the entire state Red to impair political balance. The election will be November 6, 2012.
