Lover of politics, motherhood and all things Oklahoma, I started this blog on a whim thinking it would be fun to write about my husband’s foray into politics. This was back in 2008 and the jury’s still out. BUT, if our story is to be told, it would go something like Cliff, “the small businessman” decided to enter the political world in 2002 and run for an open seat in the state senate. He was a political outsider. A small business owner who found himself frustrated with the business climate (or lack thereof) at our state capitol. Let me just say for the record that politics is a contact sport! After winning a primary, run-off and general election, our family had officially entered the fray and over the course of 12 years, would campaign, knock doors, wave signs, endure political attacks, celebrate legislative successes, and learn how the deals got done. Thanks to term limits, we are now living under the laws of which Cliff voted, and continue to have a front row seat on the sidelines watching Oklahoma politics! Hope you enjoy the view!
2014….Cliff’s Mulligan (48%) More about that race later…
I wrote the following post on Cliff’s last “official” day in office… a futile attempt to capture 12 years of his legislative service! The rest of our story, like everything else is constantly evolving, but one thing is for sure….we LOVE to talk politics around here!
