OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A 56-year-old certified public accountant from Newcastle is the first Democrat to announce he's running for state treasurer in 2010.
Jon Robinson announced his candidacy Tuesday at the state Capitol.
He's a member of the Oklahoma Society of CPAs and has worked for 12 years as an auditor with the State Auditor and Inspector's Office.
Two Republicans have already announced for the race. Former state Sen. Owen Laughlin of Woodward and state Rep. Ken Miller of Edmond are running for the GOP nomination.
Democratic State Treasurer Scott Meacham has said he won't run for a second full term in office.
Oklahoma has had only one Republican serve as treasurer since statehood - Claudette Henry was elected in 1990 and served one four-year term.
