Busy Times for the Muskogee Politico!

Posting has been pretty sparse on lately (my apologies), but that doesn't mean nothing has been going on, or that I've been sitting around doing nothing.

In the past few weeks, the Oklahoma primary took place, with many interesting tidbits. Jim Bridenstine defeated Congressman John Sullivan in an upset few outside of Oklahoma saw possible. Personally, I wasn't surprised, and I was glad at the result. I met and had lunch with Jim last fall, and came away very impressed, thinking that if anyone could beat Sullivan, it would take someone like Jim Bridenstine. No candidate - on either side - in the 2nd District made 50%, so both the Republicans (George Faught and Markwayne Mullin) and the Democrats (Wayne Herriman and Rob Wallace) are headed into runoffs. Very few surprises took place in the legislature, with only State Rep. Guy Liebmann losing in the primary, despite several hotly contested or hyped races in the Tulsa and Oklahoma City metros. ObamaCare was upheld (sort of) by the Supreme Court, thanks to Chief Justice John Roberts (who allegedly switched sides in the past few weeks).

This has been a busy year for me, but the last month or so has been extremely hectic. I have had a very full schedule with carpet cleaning in particular, which is always good!

A month ago, I purchased my first house in Muskogee, and have now moved (mostly) in. Internet access, and thus blogging, has been limited, as I only got internet here at the house this past week. It has been an exciting journey, taking on the responsibilities and duties of home ownership, and furnishing a house.'s new residence!

I can't guarantee regular posting like I have been able to do in the past, due to the fact that I'm getting married in eight weeks (which I'm pretty excited about). However, I'll do my best to keep the blog active, and post when I can. I have compiled a pretty good list of links that I highly recommend, both of national blogs and of state blogs. in particular has great stuff on the latest developments in the Presidential race.

Ain't she pretty? ;-)

To sum it up, life is busy, but life is good!

Impressive that one so young is assuming the responsibilities of a home and marriage. Congrats!
