Duncan Native Campaigns for Lt Gov

A southern Oklahoma native vying for lieutenant governor spent the day in Ardmore.

We caught up with Jari Askins at the Carter County Democratic Party meeting this afternoon.

The democrat from Duncan has dreamed of becoming the state's second in command since she attended girls' state in high school.

She's spent the past 12 years serving in the state house of representatives.

If elected, Askins wants to raise the minimum wage, allow Oklahomans to purchase prescription drugs from Canada, and focus on improving the quality of life for the next generation.

In two weeks, Askins faces Democratic Lieutenant Governor hopeful Pete Regan in a runoff election.
