Oklahoma Gov. Gets Primary Challenger

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) got a primary challenger this week.

Former state Sen. Randy Brogdon (R) announced Wednesday that he plans to run against Fallin in the GOP primary.

On his website Brodgon said he planned to file the paperwork to challenge Fallin this week.

Brogdon previously ran against Fallin for the GOP nomination back in 2010. He also served as a state senator for Oklahoma’s 34th district from 2002 to 2011.

Fallin’s office needled Brogdon for making his announcement on Christmas day.

“Governor Fallin is celebrating the birth of our Savior,” a statement from Fallin’s office said according to Oklahoma’s KFOR. “Mr. Brogdon can use this day to discuss politics. We will not.”

Fallin has also been an indirect target of the Democratic National Committee recently. Earlier in December the DNC released an ad attacking New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) for making an appearance at a fundraiser for Fallin.
