|Possible Democratic candidate, Kenneth Corn|
But not so fast - there will be a few hardened Democrats running for the seat as well. Movement is already underway to recruit former State Senator Kenneth Corn for the job. Corn is a Blue Dog who is a gun owner and has worked well with House Representatives like Richardson to pass legislation regarding hunting and fishing in Oklahoma. Corn is also a friend of many veterans groups in the state of Oklahoma and is regarded as an honest, hard-working man of his word. Truth is that I have hunted with Kenneth Corn in Southeast Oklahoma and he is very well-regarded in those parts. And he is a hoot to hunt with.
Other Democrats such as Brad Carson have been mentioned, but Carson has been out of the loop for a long time. Another is Mike Brown, but again, doesn't have the stroke of a Corn.
In any event, this should be the political race of the century and whomever the Republican candidate will be for the district, he/she will receive support from virtually every statewide elected official because, well, they are all Republicans.
