2nd District Congressional Race Update: Fisher Drops Out

Bert Fisher, Republican candidate for the 2nd District congressional seat currently held by Democrat Dan Boren, has officially dropped out of the race. Fisher, a Tulsa resident, had been attending party functions across the district over the past five months.

Fisher made the announcement in an email to party leaders.

"This has been a gut-wrenching decision, as I really want to be in the fight to correct the wrongs that are going on in America," he said. He cited his inability to run his business while campaigning as the main reason for his withdrawal.

He has not announced which candidate he will support. The remaining hopefuls are Dan Arnett of Henryetta, Daniel Edmonds of Morris, Howard Houchen of Hugo, and Charles Thompson of Hulbert.
