Dana Murphy: "Voters in Oklahoma Have Grown Weary of Candidates Who Are Looking for the Next Rung in Their Political Ladder."

“Everywhere I travel across this great state, voters of all social and economic backgrounds admit that my campaign is very different, very refreshing. Voters can easily see that to move the state forward on energy policy, they need someone who actually understands the industry and isn’t bought and paid for by special interests.” Dana Murphy

Republican Oklahoma Corporation Commission candidate Dana Murphy took the gloves off today in a press release sent to the media. Calling her race with State Rep. Rob Johnson (R-Kingfisher) the classic “David versus Goliath” scenario, Murphy said she has “probably forgotten more about the Corporation Commission than her opponents will ever know.” She goes on to say that “voters in Oklahoma have grown weary of candidates who are looking for the next rung in their political ladder.”

Murphy also questions Rep. Johnson’s fundraising prowess:

“It seems disingenuous for my opponent to boast of his fundraising for this particular race when a closer look at his donations reveals a disparity between what is said and what is done. Review of Ethics Commission reporting shows money raised by Representative Johnson has actually been contributed to his House account from many of those with a vested interest in legislation this session. As of April 29, 2008, there was not a report showing any funds contributed into his Corporation Commission account. He finally rolled over his House account contributions into his Commission account on April 30, 2008.”

This will be an interesting race to watch.
