No Surprise, Fallin Wants To Lead Oklahoma Again
Gov. Mary Fallin, who made history as Oklahoma's first female governor, has formally launched her bid for a second term in office.
Fallin announced her bid in an event Thursday morning in Tulsa. She plans stops later in the day at the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City and the Museum of the Great Plains in Lawton.
Fallin's announcement is no surprise as she's been actively raising money all year.
She reported raising about $550,000 during the second quarter this year and having more than $970,000 in her campaign fund at the end of June.
The only candidate to announce plans to run is Norman Democrat R.J. Harris, who previously ran for Congress as a Republican and as an independent.
