If Oklahoma sucks so much, then move and quit bitchin'. There are 49 to choose from.
But some of us are incurable homebodies. Then lots of poor people say they don't have the money to move. Other people fear moving somewhere where they know nobody.

I still think Stitt has it won. Stitt quite nicely fulfills the political demand to put Republican outsiders in there who have had nothing to do with running state government. Also Oklahoma conservatives certainly do not think Oklahoma Republican leaders have done such a terrifically bad job governing the state for the past 8 years that they need to resort to something extreme, like voting for a Democrat for governor. Besides that, Republicans have already pretty much taken care of business by getting rid of many of their more extreme right incumbent legislators by voting them out in the primary and runoffs. So much for this notion the farther right you go in Oklahoma, the more likely you get elected.

Drew Edmondson is an old Democratic politician who used the Edmondson name to get elected Attorney General and then farmed out the States legal work to a large firm that could be easily be done within his office.
Guess where Edmondson is getting the money to run for Governor? Edmonson is a typical member of the old Democrat machine who used to run Oklahoma. If elected his first and primary interest is going to be helping Drew Edmondson !

And Stitt's first and primary interest will be to help his millionaire business buddies from the Republican belief that if you help the millionaires you will help all of Oklahoma to richly prosper. After all, Republicans claim you can't tax your way to prosperity. Never mind the taxpayer funded MAPS projects in Oklahoma City.

Townie...I thought you would welcome a new non-political business person in the Governors Office who seeks to change the old way of doing business in Oklahoma.

The latest polls show Stitt leading Edmondson 47% to 44%. That's a closer race than I expected. Of course we found out just how inaccurate polls can be during our last presidential election.

its funny i am old enough to remember when Oklahoma was just opposite of now. you registered as a Democrat so you could vote in Primary elections. now at least in NE Ok , its almost opposite, no Democratic candidates. may have to change my party to keep voting. Vote mostly republican but will vote for Drew. having a teacher in the house will do that for you. and i don't like outside ads that imply all democrats are, lets see if i remember correctly, tax loving, old establishment, career, motherloving Pelosi, Obama, Clinton lovers.

So you just want to complain instead of doing something about it? Move to Seattle. It's a haven for socialists. That is, if you can afford it.

Considering how dearly you hate Democrats, it must have been easy for you to forgive Republicans for making you pay 3 cents more tax on a gallon a tax and will vote straight Republican. And it's not even going to fix the roads.

Also it must have been easy to forgive Republicans for swiping $230 million from the county road and bridge fund, especially, if you seldom need to drive in the country. At least some of the county commissioner candidates say the first order of business they will do if elected is fix the roads where they have become unsafe.

I can guarantee it wont be close. Dont get your hopes up lol.
Don't worry, I'm not. Rural Oklahomans will help carry the day for Stitt. They don't need Edmondson for anything. More Medicaid can't save rural hospitals. The majority of the towns in rural Oklahoma are declining and hospitals can't make it there much longer. Some are poorly run. To rural people, this is accepted and simply something that comes with rural living these days.

Stillwater Hospital has been losing money trying to keep the hospital in Perry open. That town couldn't even keep its Wal-Mart open.

Orrrr it could be that Edmondson's policies and proposed regs (and history as attorney general) are fairly anti-ag and rural Oklahoma communities are heavily ag industry based and supported. Thus, most rural Oklahoma voters are yes, going to be pro-Stitt, so that they still have an income a year after voting.


But go ahead and blame it on a declining rural Oklahoma community full of voters "too stupid" to vote for Edmondson. :facepalm:
