OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A colorful new candidate who plans to make legalization of marijuana one of his top priorities has joined Oklahoma's gubernatorial race.
Christian motorcyclist Joe Sills, a 36-year-old independent, is the fourth candidate to join the governor's race. While most candidates wore suits, Sills opted for a leather jacket and backward camouflage hat when he came to the Capitol to file on Thursday.
Sills joins Republican Gov. Mary Fallin, Democratic state Rep. Joe Dorman of Rush Springs and independent Richard Prawdzienski of Edmond in the race.
A former state representative, lieutenant governor and member of Congress, Fallin has served the Republican party for more than 20 years in Oklahoma. Dorman is a term-limited state representative who vowed to launch a grassroots campaign, and Prawdzienski is a perennial candidate.
