Laughlin launches state treasurer's race
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Former state Sen. Owen Laughlin of Woodward
has formally begun his statewide campaign for state treasurer.
Laughlin said Thursday at the state Capitol that he'll run for
the Republican nomination for treasurer. Democratic state Treasurer
Scott Meacham is not seeking re-election.
Laughlin says he entered the race because taxpayers deserve a
candidate with a track record of "fiscal sanity." If elected
Laughlin says he'll wage a "war on government waste."
Laughlin was elected to the state Senate in 1996 and served
until 2008 when he left due to term limits. He's an attorney and
was in the banking business for 20 years.
Republican state Rep. Ken Miller of Edmond is also running for
the GOP nomination. There is currently no Democrat in the race.
