STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Republican Gov. Mary Fallin and Democratic nominee Joe Dorman are prepared to face off on live television in their race for Oklahoma’s top office.
The debate will be held at 7 p.m. on the Oklahoma State University campus. It is hosted by the university in partnership with the League of Women Voters of Oklahoma and is the only scheduled state gubernatorial debate.
Fallin is seeking her second, four-year term in office following a two-decade career in Oklahoma politics that has included stints in the Oklahoma House, as lieutenant governor and two terms in Congress. Dorman is a Democratic state legislator from Rush Springs who is completing his sixth and final two-year term in office.
Campaign finance reports show Dorman has raised about $655,000, while Fallin has amassed about $3.2 million.
