OKLAHOMA CITY– Mick Cornett’s campaign for Governor on Monday announced their first advertisement before the August 28 Primary Runoff Election titled “Okay,” a 60 second spot which features Cornett speaking directly to voters about the challenges facing Oklahoma, the achievements of Oklahoma City while he was Mayor, and supporters urging him to “do it again!”

“As I’ve travelled across our great state, the challenges we are facing are apparent to nearly every Oklahoman,” Cornett said. “State government is a mess, but people aren’t ready to give up. They’re ready for the right person to lead them through it. I’ll work hard for you, your family, and your community no matter what part of the state you call home.”

The language in the commercial reads:

Let’s be honest for a moment, Oklahoma is not ok – we’re struggling. Problems with the Legislature, the budget, taxes, and our economy. Our kids are not getting the education they deserve. Now we can’t fix it all overnight, but we can fix it.

“As Mayor of Oklahoma City we added 100,000 jobs, 10,000 new businesses, passed 14-straight balanced budgets, increased the rainy-day fund, earned the highest possible bond rating. When was the last time you heard those words used to describe our state government? I’ve been called the most conservative big city mayor in America. But you can’t just talk conservative, you’ve got to produce – like we did in Oklahoma City.”
