Question of the Week

It was announced this week that SQ798, which would amend the state constitution to allow the Governor and Lt. Governor to run as a single ticket (like the President/Vice President) beginning in 2026. Do you feel this is a good, bad, or something else? Let us know via email or Twitter!

Take-aways

  • These candidates bring very different skill sets and experiences to the race:
    • Dana Murphy is from a rural area and has been a Corporation Commissioner for 10 years, working directly with the legislature and other state leaders.
    • Matt Pinnell is from the Tulsa area and is a small business owner, but has worked for the Republican party at both the state and national level. 
  • We'll let you listen to both interviews and form your own opinions on the candidates' positions. 
  • Reminder that these are just the candidates in the Republican primary run-off for this position. We hope to have the Democratic nominee, Anastasia Pittman, join us on the podcast soon so that you can hear her thoughts on these same questions.
