OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma's two-term Auditor and Inspector Gary Jones says he is strongly considering running for state treasurer in 2018.
The Republican from Cache said Friday he hasn't made a final decision, but plans to do so after the 2016 general election.
Both Jones and Oklahoma Treasurer Ken Miller are term-limited in 2018.
Jones is a cattle rancher, a certified public accountant and the former chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party. He was elected in 2010 as part of a Republican sweep of every statewide elected office on the ballot.
Jones says he would prefer to seek another four-year term as state auditor, but is prohibited because of term limits.
Lawmakers this year considered a proposal to increase some term limits to 12 years, but it was killed in the House.
