GOP Hopes to Flip, Dems Look to Retain 2nd Congressional District (Jun 18, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Three eastern Oklahoma Democrats are hoping to keep the state's Second Congressional District seat in their party's hands this year.

The eastern Oklahoma seat is currently held by U.S. Rep. Dan Boren, a Muskogee Democrat who surprisingly announced last summer that he wouldn't seek a fifth term in office and instead planned to return to work in the private sector.

Democrats seeking the post include 78-year-old retired schoolteacher Earl Everett from Fort Gibson; 59-year0ikd

Muskogee-based seed company owner Wayne Herriman; and 48-year old former state and federal prosecutor Rob Wallace from Fort Gibson.

The winner of the June 26 primary will take on whoever emerges from a six-man Republican primary field, plus an independent, in November.

The Republicans are three-term state Rep. George Faught of

Muskogee; business owner Markwayne Mullin of Westville; former Edmond state Rep. Wayne Pettigrew of McAlester; attorney and former Tishomingo Mayor Dustin Rowe; Fort Gibson minister Dwayne Thompson and retired Marine Corps officer Dakota Wood.
