SOSU to host governor's debate May 6th

Posted: Updated:


     SOSU in Durant will host a governor's candidate debate on May 6th, and the forum will allow Oklahoma residents a chance hear first-hand what each candidate feels is the right course for the state.

     The forum is sponsored by the Oklahoma Academy and will take place at 7 p.m. In Montgomery Auditorium.

     Three candidates have confirmed: Lt. Gov. Jari Askins and Attorney General Drew Edmondson for the Democrats and, and State Sen. Randy Brogdon for the Republicans.

     This is the first time in more than 15 years the university hosted a governor's debate.

     Oklahoma's primary election is set for July 27, and the general election will follow in November.
