Oklahoma Labor Commissioner Mark Costello is out front early with his pick for president. Yesterday, in what I assume was a statewide mailing, Costello said "I stand with Scott Walker for President", and urged Oklahomans to attend the Southern Republican Leadership Conference this weekend and "cast your vote for Gov. Scott Walker for President in the largest regional presidential straw poll of 2015".

In the mailer, Costello talked about his trip to campaign for Walker in the 2012 labor union-led recall election. There are two photos of Costello and Walker, one during the 2012 recall and another from Costello's 2014 re-election campaign. The back of the mailer details Walker's bio and accomplishments.
Walker will join the following announced or potential presidential candidates at the SRLC (which runs from Thursday through Saturday): former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Dr. Ben Carson, Senator Ted Cruz, Mark Everson, Carly Fiorina, former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore, Senator Lindsey Graham, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Texas Governor Rick Perry, Senator Marco Rubio, and former Senator Rick Santorum.
