OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Newly elected Oklahoma Congressman Markwayne Mullin owes about $327,000 in campaign debt.
The Oklahoman reported (http://bit.ly/UoPhsh ) Sunday that the Republican Mullin spent nearly $1.6 million in his successful campaign for the seat being vacated by Democrat Dan Boren. Mullin had $33,509 in the bank on Nov. 26 according to a report filed Thursday with the Federal Election Commission.
Mullin defeated Democrat Rob Wallace and Independent Michael Fulks in the November general election.
Mullin loaned his campaign $255,750 and has repaid himself $27,750. He also spent nearly $100,000 in the final weeks of the campaign - much of that going to consultants.
Mullin campaign manager Tim Ross told the newspaper that fund-raising efforts are ongoing.
Wallace reports spending nearly $1.2 million on his race and reports no debts.
