2008 primary picks

This post will remain at the top of the blog until the polls close.

I'll have five choices on my ballot in the 2008 Oklahoma primary election; here's how I plan to mark it:

U. S. Senator: Sen. Jim Inhofe
U. S. Representative, District 1: Rep. John Sullivan
Corporation Commissioner, Short Term: Dana Murphy
State Senator, District 35: Gary Stanislawski
Tulsa County Commissioner, District 2: Sally Bell

If you're a Republican in Senate District 37, I encourage you to vote for Dan Newberry, a solid conservative and a hard-working campaigner. I think he has the best shot at recapturing the seat for the GOP in November.

If I lived in House District 98, I'd be voting for John Trebilcock. John has hit a few bumps in the road, but he's been a solid legislator, and I appreciate his courage in standing up to the Cargill machine at the Capitol.

Here are some links that may be helpful as you go to vote:

Is it just me, or is anyone else amused that John Sullivan's website is not just "out of date", but TWO FULL ELECTIONS out of date?

Good grief, the ads that are up there are the ones he ran against Doug Dodd.

"QT paid off Taylors campaign debt, then bailed out Miller to clear the former site of Bells, in exchange for renaming the IPE center "Quik Trip center". Taylor and Thornborough or however the name is spelled was plotting on the Camelot site for years to build a mega QT truckstop and sell the rest of the parcel off to ODOT for the widening of I-44. Very well run chain store, owns the current mayor of Tulsa"

What do you think about this comment left on the above YouTube video?
I had been wondering how/why Expo was renamed QT soon after Bell's left..
Also the whole build a QT at riverparks/ river tax fiasco sparks my interest.
Might be a good lead.

Jim Rogers, Andrew Rice's token opposition in the Democratic primary, took 41% of the vote, and won 18 counties without spending a dime. It's going to be a slaughter in November...
