Democratic Oklahoma House leader eyeing 2018 governor’s race

The Associated Press - December 2, 2016 9:49 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Democratic leader of the Oklahoma House of Representatives says he’s taking a “serious look” at running for governor in 2018.

Rep. Scott Inman of Del City told The Associated Press on Thursday that he intends to make a decision in the spring.

Republican Gov. Mary Fallin is barred by term limits from running for re-election.

The 38-year-old Inman says he’s spent the last year visiting with business, education and community leaders across Oklahoma talking about ways to improve the state.

He’s an attorney who was first elected to the House in 2006 and was elected Democratic leader three years later. He’s term limited in the Legislature in 2018.

Inman’s comment comes after former U.S. Rep. Dan Boren and state Rep. Joe Dorman both said they don’t plan to run.
