AFTER FALLIN SIDES WITH WASHINGTON DC BUREAUCRATS ON GUNS AND EDUCATION – WASHINGTON DC SPECIAL INTERESTS COME TO HER AID
Polls Show Fallin In Trouble – DC Interest Groups Come Running
OKLAHOMA CITY – Joe Dorman, Democratic nominee for governor, held a press conference today to talk about the recent media buy from the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA) for Mary Fallin.
“The RGA is spewing lies in the recent media buy for Governor Fallin. Once again she is hiding behind Washington bureaucrats and depending on others to do her bidding,” said Dorman. “Why is the Governor afraid? Fallin is obviously out of touch with not only Oklahomans, but how to effectively run a campaign.”
The RGA purchased a $193,660 broadcast media buy in Oklahoma City and Tulsa to run September 24 through October 6 and $22,368 on cable networks for the same duration. The ad arguably claims that Fallin has stood up to Washington on gun control, Common Core, and taxes.
“This is a commercial that highlights Fallin’s flip flops. She took $3 million from the Affordable Care Act, she was a staunch supporter of Common Core until a majority of Oklahomans were against the policy, when in Congress, Fallin voted for HR 7311 in 2008 to allow protection for immigrant children, and she promoted a property tax increase on the backs of working Oklahomans,” said Dorman. “I’m tired of the lies she is allowing her D.C. cronies and her spokesperson to spread.”
“It’s time Oklahoma had a Governor who is wiling to take the lead on tough issues and address the needs of our citizens. I will work for the best interests of Oklahomans and a true voice for our state.”
