Political Hopefuls File for House Seat (Aug 22, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Two Democrats and three Republicans have filed candidacy papers for a vacant House seat in southeast Oklahoma.

Smithville High School principal Curtis McDaniel filed Monday as a Democrat, along with Donald Ray, retired Haworth superintendent. Broken Bow bed and breakfast owner Joe Silk filed his declaration of candidacy as a Republican on Monday for House District 1. The other Republicans in the race are funeral home worker Kenny Sivard and business owner Kevin George.

The seat in McCurtain County became vacant when first-term Republican Rep. Rusty Farley of Haworth died on July 4 after suffering a pulmonary aneurysm.

The filing period will continue through Wednesday at the state Capitol. A primary election is set for Nov. 8, with a general election planned for Feb. 14. If no primary election is required, the general election will instead be held on Nov. 8.
