ODP News, Views, and Rumors

Oklahoma's favorite son, humorist and Democrat, Will Rogers once said "all I know is what I read in the papers" then said "rumor travels faster but it don't stay put as long as truth." That, of course, was before our "click and you're published" world made possible by the Internet when fact and fiction are just a keystroke away. Now just imagine how exciting Will's blog would've been!

All sorts of news, views, and rumors about Democrats and Republicans are available online, on air, and in print -- right here in Oklahoma. For years Frosty Troy has provided fact-based political news, commentary and analysis, hitting both Democrats and Republicans, on the pages of his Oklahoma Observer. Frosty recently formed a new partnership with Arnold Hamilton, formerly with the Dallas Morning News, and they have gone online with the Observer. I wish them well in this new endeavor.

As for the official news for the Oklahoma Democratic Party, you can trust this blog OK Blue Notes, our quarterly newspaper The Yellow Dog Democrat Dispatch and our website at For rumors and gossip you'll have to go to another source.

The ODP has a full time professional communications director, Jason McCarty who is responsible for the state party's official media business. Jason is one of our DNC Partnership Project staff members and has been at the ODP since 2005. To contact Jason call him at 405.427.3366 or email
