NEWS FLASH: No Haiku Visual this week. Taking a break and resting my brain!
Historic Governor's race now underway in Oklahoma! It's a girl fight for the Governor's job.
Both former Lieutenant Governors and former State House members, current U.S. Representative Mary Fallin faces Lt. Gov. Jari Askins for the top job.
Mary fought off a tough Constitutional and states rights candidate in our former suite-mate Randy Brogdon and took 60% of the vote. I knew Brogdon's voters would turn out but he never got past 40% or so. Still, probably much closer than the "establishment" was comfortable with him receiving.
Meanwhile, Jari and her opponent, Drew Edmondson, were neck and neck all night. If you think your vote doesn't count, look at this race. I think her percentage was 50.4% to Drew's 49.6%. Jari is likeable and inoffensive all around and might do well, especially with Barry Switzer's golden magic support of her. I swear, whatever he touches turns to gold. Ask Kymmie about her Switzer encounter, it is pretty funny.
Now, my husband's "crush" on Mary Fallin is well known and documented. May have to turn off the TV during campaign season. I already know how he is going to vote.
