Leftwich BBQ

Senator Debbe Leftwich hosted a great event last night at the Plumbers and Pipefitters Union Hall in south OKC. Current elected officials present included Gov. Brad Henry, Rep. Jari Askins, Rep. Al Lindley, Rep. Rebecca Hamilton, Rep. Richard Morrissette, OK County Commissioner Jim Roth, and OK County Sheriff John Whetsel. Their presence is a great testament to Senator Leftwich's standing and leadership in the district and in Oklahoma.

The room was packed with folks enjoying the music, bbq, hot dogs and politics. And that includes CD 5 Congressional nominee Dr. David Hunter whose standing in the polls is rising. (I heard that Fallin refuses to debate him after his inspiring performance Saturday night. And when I reviewed the tape of the speech I noticed Thad Balkman ducking out of the audience as Hunter took control of the room, as a matter of fact, I don't remember seeing any of the Republicans at the conclusion of the event.)

And speaking of rise in the polls, check out the great work at the Askins for Lt. Gov. campaign. Todd who?????

Other notables and activists I saw include Betty McElderry, Pat Hall, Myrna Burnam, Judy Calhoun, Ed Blau, Thomas Cook, Calvin Rees, and Tim O'Connor.

Thank you Senator Leftwich for your leadership!
