Richardson Picks Cornett in Run-off Election
After the dust settled in the June 26th Republican Primary Election, the field of 10 Republican candidates for governor had been reduced to two. One question was whether the other eight would pull behind one of the top-two finishers. And it was a question answered early by Gary Richardson.
The Muskogee Politico reported on Richardson’s support for Mick Cornett:
“Mick Cornett based on the record has obviously helped transform Oklahoma City into a thriving metropolis that has created over 100,000 new jobs, not just in OKC, but the whole region. Our state is in a mess, and Mick has shown he has the ability to bring prosperity back to Oklahoma.”
