Primary and Runoff Endorsements

What do you think? Do they matter? Do they make a difference? Are groups or individuals more important? Do newspapers and elected officials matter? Who is who? And who cares?

Ultimately, what's important is the individual "endorsement" of voters on election day. Before election day our state party officers are neutral in primaries and runoff elections but once the party has a nominee we stand with our nominee.

We are proud to stand with Governor Brad Henry, Attorney General Drew Edmondson, State Superintendent Sandy Garrett, State Treasurer Scott Meacham, State Auditor Jeff McMahan and State Insurance Commissioner Kim Holland. We are also proud to stand with our nominee for State Labor Commissioner Lloyd Fields. On the evening of August 22 we stand proudly with the winner of the runoff for Lt. Governor - either Jari Askins or Pete Regan.

We also encourage Oklahomans to support our Democratic nominees for Congress: Alan Gentges, CD 1; Rep. Dan Boren, CD 2; Sue Barton, CD 3; Hal Spake, CD 4; and Dr. David Hunter, CD 5.

So again --- What do you think? Do they matter? Do they make a difference? Are groups or individuals more important? Do newspapers and elected officials matter? Who is who? And who cares?
