2 more Democrats to seek Oklahoma’s 5th District seat
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Two more Democrats are jumping into the race for Oklahoma’s 5th Congressional District that includes most of Oklahoma City.
Kendra Horn, the director of a nonprofit agency, and retired state worker Eddie Ray Porter both said this week that they plan to seek the seat currently held by two-term Republican U.S. Rep. Steve Russell.
The 41-year-old Horn is the executive director of Women Lead Oklahoma, a nonprofit that seeks to engage more women in the civic process. She also served as a press secretary for former U.S. Rep. Brad Carson.
Porter, 66, is a retired state worker with the Office of Juvenile Affairs.
Another Democrat seeking the post is perennial candidate Tom Guild, a retired university professor who ran unsuccessfully for the seat in 2012, 2014 and 2016.
