Four candidates are running for Insurance Commissioner this year - three Republicans, and the incumbent Democrat.
The candidate who is the best choice for this seat is John Doak.
John has extensive experience in the insurance field, at multiple levels. He will enter the job with the ability to hit the ground running.
He is a conservative, and will work to make insurance more affordable not through more government mandates and regulations, but through free-market competition and choices. John will fight against ObamaCare - the Democrat incumbent in this race happens to have been a 2008 presidential delegate for Barack Obama. In addition, he has spoken out against the 78-milion dollar insurance "fee" increase that was part of this session's budget agreement made by the Governor and Republican legislative leadership.
John Crawford, one of his GOP opponents, held this seat in the mid 90's, but left office in disgrace, and under an FBI investigation. His other opponent (Mark Croucher) would also make a good Insurance Commissioner, but Doak has a more active campaign, and I believe has a better chance at winning in November.
My vote will be cast for John Doak.
You can learn more about John and his campaign by visiting his website at www.VoteForDoak.com. He is also on Facebook.
John joins Tom Coburn, Dana Murphy, Owen Laughlin, John Wright, Gary Jones and Janet Barresi as my endorsed candidates for the July 27th Republican primary. Stay tuned for more endorsements!
