GOP senate candidate Larry Boggs did a throw-down on Obama at candidate forum in McAlester Oklahoma. Boggs & Obama supporters got into argument when he said Obama, if elected will control guns. And that he, as a NRA member will do what ever he can to get Obama out of office. He & his opponent J Paul Lane were given the question what would they do to protect 2nd amendment rights if Obama was re-elected. When he said that Obama would control guns, that’s when matters got intense.
Larry Boggs is the republican nominee seeking election to the Oklahoma Senate District 7 that is being vacated by Richard C. Lerblance (democrat). His opponent is J. Paul Lane, the democratic nominee. Election is November 6, 2012.
This political candidate forum sponsored by McAlester News, in McAlester, Oklahoma. This event was held on Oct 16, 2012 at 6pm at the Kiamichi Center in McAlester. Approximately 200 people attended.
Bob Anthony (R-OK) is seeking re-election as Oklahoma Corporation Commissioner in 2012. Another republican Brooks Mitchell is running against him. Both of these candidates will compete in the primaries on June 26, 2012. There are no democrats running for this state office.
Anthony says he’s has business experience & is a military veteran (Airforce & Air Defense Artillery). He explains that the Oklahoma Corporation Commission regulates big monopoly public utilities such as electric & gas, railroad crossing & cotton gins. He responded in this interview that the commission however does not regulate rural water districts due to state legislation. When I suggested that the Oklahoma legislatures place rural water districts under the corporation commission’s jurisdiction, he indicated that the commission already has a lot on their plate.
This interview was done at Oklahoma GOP state convention on May 12, 2012 at Embassy Suites in Norman, Oklahoma. At this state GOP Convention I did not see his opponent Brooks Mitchell. Therefore I was unable to meet with Mitchell.
Howard Houchen is running for Oklahoma state senate (District 5) in 2012 to beat out democrat Jerry Ellis (incumbent). Since both of these candidates are in different political parties, they will be on ballot in general election in November.
When asked Houchen about his position on open meetings (open government rule) at the state capital, he said that he supported HR1004 petition and that his opponent Jerry Ellis did not. There were talks amongst Oklahoma State legislatures about allowing all representatives discuss bills so that it was not left up to the chairman to arbitrarily kill it without discussion. Then suddenly they decided against it. Here’s the website that explains the HR1004 petition.
Also Houchen informed me that if Jerry Ellis were to win, that he could not fulfill his full term of office. Since this was the case with Ellis, Houchen added that he wanted to give the people a voice throughout the entire legislative process.
Oklahoma State senate district #5 covers the following 5 counties: Atoka (eastern portion) , Choctaw (entirety), Leflore (southern portion),McCurtain(entirety) and Pushmataha (entirety).
The general election is November 6, 2012.
This interview was done at Oklahoma GOP state convention on May 12, 2012 at Embassy Suites in Norman, Oklahoma.
At Oklahoma GOP convention on May 12, 2012 I met up w/ Jimmy McMillan: “the rent is too damn high” man & asked him about his previously announced candidacy for president. He responded that he’s a registered republican.
Location of this interview was at Embassy Suites in Norman, Oklahoma.
Tonite, driving from Walmart getting on to George Nigh Exwy, I spotted a Ron Paul sign. It was the ONLY political sign in the whole area.. just sitting out there all by it’s lonesome.
Before any Ron Paul supporters start jumping my bones, I want to say that I ain’t got nothing against Ron Paul & in fact I like the guy.. But a Ron Paul sign in these neck of the woods is highly unusual. I didn’t think Ron Paul was even on the radar out here. In McAlester, OK (or surrounding area of District 2) most Republicans I talk to would say they support Santorum or Romney. But Ron Paul ?????? This is a first. I need to find out what the hell is going on. I’m call up Pittsburg GOP to find out if Paul has a headquarters out here.
At Oklahoma GOP event, republicans introduced to GOP Larry Boggs who’s running for Oklahoma State Senate seat 7th district. Democrat State Senator Richard Lerblance is bowing out of forthcoming election, so Oklahoma republicans in the 7th district appear to be backing GOP Larry Boggs to win that seat. BTW, there’s rumor that District 7 has been remapped to include parts of Hughes County.
Sometimes Oklahoma rural folks feel alienated & ignored by the urban state senators. It’s like Oklahoma urban senators give better treatment & a willing ear to the concerns of the folks who live in Oklahoma City, but forsake the rural folks who are all but forgotten, and have to accept the left-overs or nothing at all. The fix to this social disparagement is the root of Larry Boggs’ platform.
This GOP event was held in McAlester, OK on January 31, 2012 at Angels Diner (conference meeting room). Larry Boggs was introduced to the republican crowd by Oklahoma GOP State Senator Josh Brecheen.
