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.
