State Rep. Faught Draws 2010 Opponent

State Rep. George Faught (R, Muskogee) appears to have drawn a Democratic opponent for the upcoming 2010 election.

Fort Gibson Democrat Brad Clinkenbeard has filed a Statement of Organization (SO-1) with the Oklahoma Ethics Commission, officially forming his campaign committee.

Faught was first elected in 2006, shocking state Democrat and Republican leaders, and became the only Republican in state history to win the House District 14 seat. He was subsequently reelected in 2008 with 56% of the vote, in a district with only about 25% registered Republicans.
