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.
Oklahoma Republican female voter reveals who she may vote for in Oklahoma’s 2nd US Congressional & Presidential election 2012. She’s leaning Dakota Woods & Markwayne Mullin for US congress; but since she had not seen all of the GOP candidates she said she could change her mind. But she did say that her liking for Mullin & Woods was because they seemed strong & forceful.
Voter says she prefers Rick Santorum for President, but since he’s unlikely to win GOP nomination, she said she’d probably vote for Mitt Romney. When asked about Newt, the voter strongly replied he was dirty, a big government progressive & lack morals & character. However, voter felt Mitt was not that conservative, but that she would chose him over Newt based on morals & character.
This interview was on January 31, 2012 in McAlester, OK at a GOP event held at Angel’s Diner.
I plan to do more video polling of Republican voters at forthcoming Oklahoma GOP events so as to get a feel for how GOP voters are leaning.
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.
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.
