THE RACE FOR GOVERNOR
A TRUE CHOICE BETWEEN THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS
It's getting tight in the race to become our next Governor. What drew us to this story was this article from the NON-DOC newsletter. The debate barely mentioned agriculture in our state and concentrated on education. Included was the discussion that Mr. Edmondson wanted to fix the formula that education gets while Mr. Stitt wants to raise teacher's pay. Both ideas are tax increases coming in the near future. The only mention of a
third-party candidate was as a joke by Mr. Edmondson. Needless to say, the third-party candidate wasn't at the debate.
We next found this article on Mr. Edmondson's campaign web site. It's an appeal to get people looking at his candidacy. First, there is no mention of what party he is running for. Secondly, we found the following on his web site. "Why he's running, Mr. the former Attorney General writes that he is running because the Oklahoma way is under attack by big corporations and the wealthy who have put their interest first at the expense of most Oklahoman's, I'm running to take on Wall Street, take on the powerful, take on our legislature, take on anyone – from either party that isn't putting the people of Oklahoma first. I've done it my whole life." He claims he wants to protect schools. Health care, seniors, working people and children, and bring back good jobs that benefit communities.
