In the extremely long campaign for Oklahoma's 1st District Congressman, Republicans are still making choices. In fact, over 43% of the voters did NOT select either Hern of Harris. So this runoff is wide open. the past 8 weeks were full of intense research for those who take their civic duty seriously.
I spoke with both men from time to time over several years. I consider them both to be solidly competent. I believe Harris has spent too much of his career in criminal prosecution. I further believe that prosecutors acquire a taint view of humanity, over time. They see the very worst of people every day. Almost always we see a subtle prejudice consume them. Harris's legacy demonstrates some of this and his last 3 years in office were his worst. He went after poor people in a manner that he didn't when the citizen was wealthy.
I have many contacts and clients who are among the wealthiest in Oklahoma. They all speak with awe, about Kevin Hern's work ethic.
SoonerPolitics encourages & endorses the Hern candidacy for congress.
Tim Bakamjian is a fellow blogger at SoonerPolitics. Today I read his latest thesis on the runoff. I believe it is perhaps the best analysis I have seen. So rather I believe that the best I can do for Oklahoma is to expose the voters to Tim's great blog post on the 1st District Congressional runoff.
