Stitt (not the Governor) files for Inhofe's Senate seat

JJ Stitt has filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission, declaring a campaign for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Jim Inhofe.

This Stitt is no relation to Governor Kevin Stitt. Update: JJ Stitt emailed me and said that he and Governor Stitt "are distant cousins".

JJ Stitt, a resident of Kingfisher, gave an interview with the Kingfisher Times & Free Press two weeks ago in which he more publicly announced his campaign.

A farmer-rancher, he spent a career in law enforcement, working in sheriff's departments in southeastern Texas and, most recently, in Kingfisher County. He also owns a gun store in Kingfisher.

You can visit his campaign website here.
