ATOKA, OK-Sheriff McCool leaves some big shoes to fill and two Democrats are in the race for the seat he's leaving.
Caney's Tony Head and Harmony's Brad Horn are running for sheriff. Head is currently the Caney Police Chief and a Sheriff's Deputy, while Horn is working for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections and the Coal County Sheriff's Office.

"I've been in law enforcement in this county for over 21 years. I basically know the in and outs of law enforcement in this community," said Head.

"Well I feel like Atoka County has needed a change for a long time. I have a college degree in Criminal Justice and Business Management. I've owned and operated my own personal business so I feel like that I've got the knowledge to take care of the county," said Horn.

The election will be on Tuesday the 26th.

    If Horn owned and operated his own business to any degree of success, he would denounce what the democrats are doing to small businesses in America!!

        Hahahahahaha!! Wake up dip! The democrats are the party of MORE taxes! Obama wants to raise taxes now on the wealthy (i.e. those with good educations and jobs) and small businesses! There would be a 50% tax if it were totally up to the democrats and everyone with any sense knows that!

          Turn off the Glenn Beck. This country was the MOST prosperous when the rich paid nearly 70% in they pay around 15% like Romney. Look at a graph of personal income going back to 1930 to to Tax rate...YOU LIE!

          Not sure why someone would show their ignorance like the that loser who isn't smart enough to look up facts about the tax breaks small businesses have gotten in the last three years. And I have a good education and good job,(Probably a whole lot better than yours) and Obama isn't wanting to raise my taxes. Nor is he planing to raise taxes on small businesses in the future. Very, very few small business owners are millionaires. And if the wealthy did receive an increase, it would only be on earnings OVER a million $. And then it would only be 3 to 5 % of that. But of course, morons will just sit back and let the GOP fat-cats tell them anything, knowing they will believe any crazy line of BS they feed them. You people are so dumbed down, it's pathetic.

    We need someone who knows law enforcement and knows the people of Atoka County. Tony Head has all the qualifications we need and is someone we can trust to do a good job.

    Two democrats, nice! Maybe if they are elected they will confiscate the belongings of the evil wealthy citizens and give it to the illegals and non-working.

        Got one. Now you, get a job! Oh, never mind, there aren't any thanks to the job-killing policies of your hero, Barrack Hussein Obama.

          Also, explain an Obama job killing specific...give us the exact policy which is costing jobs? Also, explain why Republicans, as recently as yesterday, attach "poison pill" amendments to GOOD legislation designed to help Americans? Rand Paul attached a "fetus personhood" clause to a FLOOD INSURANCE bill..effectively killing it just yesterday! May I ask what a fetus has to do with Flood Insurance?

          What a pathetic post. "Now you, get a job." Me get a job? You say that to someone who has been gainfully and continuously employed since before high school, all through my college years, and for a few decades beyond? You clearly haven't a clue of what you are talikg about. You are typical of your ilk. Throw out unfounded, outrageous comment #165, and try to come across as clever, when in reality you just once again expose your ignorance and lack of any moral compass.

      Illegals and non-working are easy targets...try veteran benefits and minimum wage earners. Not so easy to justify the cuts is it? How about trust fund babies living on daddies wealth who don't put them in the same category with the "non-working"?

          I don't think you pay taxes do you? I bet you get a refund every year don't you? I say this because your grammar indicates someone of mediocre education...probably blue collar with kids. So you likely get Child Earned Income Credits and actually get a big Tax Refund every year...right?
