Less than a month before the primary, Republican candidate for Governor Kevin Stitt is making a stop in Luther Wednesday morning. He will be at the 116 Farmstead, Market & Table, on Luther’s Main Street, from 9:30 – 10:30 am with an intention of meeting voters and talking about the issues. There will be complimentary coffee.
Stitt’s campaign website says he is a conservative Republican, entrepreneur and an “outsider” to Oklahoma politics. He founded Gateway Mortgage Company, headquartered in Tulsa, with branches in 41 states. He is one of ten Republican candidates on the ballot for the June 26 primary. A run-off election is expected in August among the top finishers.
The Republican names on the ballot include:
Barry Gowdy, 51, Elk City
Gary Richardson, 77, Tulsa
Christopher Barnett, 34, Tulsa
Mick Cornett, 59, Oklahoma City
Dan Fisher, 58, El Reno
Todd Lamb, 46, Oklahoma City
Kevin Stitt, 45, Tulsa
Eric Foutch, 44, McLoud
Gary Jones, 63, Cache
Blake Cowboy Stephens, 57, Tahlequah
The winning Republican will be on the November General Election ballot with the winner of the Democratic primary between Drew Edmondson (who campaigned in Luther earlier this year) and Connie Johnson.
