OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett has
announced plans to run for re-election.
Cornett had been considered a potential candidate for the 5th
District congressional seat held by Republican U.S. Rep. Mary
Fallin - who is running for governor.
Cornett says he's "certainly aware" of political opportunities
that include possible races for Congress, governor or lieutenant
governor - but doesn't intend to consider them. He says Oklahoma
City is becoming a world-class city and he wants to continue that
Cornett lost the Republican nomination to Congress in a runoff
with Fallin in 2006.
He was first elected mayor in a special election in 2004 and was
re-elected in 2006.
The election will be March 2, 2010.
