Gov of OK Mary Fallin Challenged by Possible Liberty CandidateSubmitted by Paul 3V0L on Thu, 01/16/2014 - 01:16
So what do we know about Randy Brogdon? He’s running for Gov of OK challenging Republican incumbent, Mary Fallin. I just recently learned about his campaign on the Tom Woods show, which was pretty cool as I am a brand new subscriber to his iTunes podcast (perfect for my commute to work), and was pleasantly surprised to hear about a REAL LIFE Liberty candidate in Oklahoma. And then I thought ‘oh, it probably doesn’t even matter. He doesn’t have a shot beating Fallin.' But then realized the democrats down here hate her. I mean they HATE her bad. One of my lefty friends worded it perfectly, “The most progressive thing Oklahoma has ever done is elect a woman as governor, and she is the antithesis of progressive.” He’s right.
So I feel like we might have a leg up here. Would it be worth pursuing and try to harness some of that bitterness and anger and try win some of the Democrats and show them the light of a Liberty candidate? He may not be perfect for them, but Fallin is gonna crush whoever the Democrat nominee is. And they know it. Oklahoma hates Obama so much they wouldn’t DARE elect a Democrat as a gov. Fallin is a typical establishment republican who lives in the Bible Belt. I wonder what a Gov Fallin would do in the event SHTF with her calling the shots. In fact, I feel like she’d cave easily under pressure and bow to the Feds.
Is it worth pursuing? I want/need campaign experience for when Rand gets here so I’m thinking I will help this guy if he’s legit. But I have yet to hear very many of his positions or see any voting records serving as Oklahoma State Senator. I don’t remember hearing anything about him in the 2010 primary (when Fallin was elected) beating this guy in the primaries by a not-so-big margin 54.79% to 39.41% http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randy_Brogdon I didn’t pay much attention to what was going on back then. I was busy partying in college. I don’t know much about him other than what I heard on the Tom Woods show and looking over his website. https://randybrogdon.com/about/
Is it possible this guy can win? Now what?
