Senate candidate Dr. Randy Grellner puts $786k into ads

Dr. Randy Grellner of Cushing is one of the 13 Republican candidates seeking to replace retiring U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe. Amid the crowded field, I missed any news about his candidacy, until my wife saw his campaign represented at a local event. Somewhat ashamed that I had no recollection of his candidacy (haha!), I checked out his website, only to find out that he was dropping an astounding $786,000 on a media buy.


It's not often that a no-name, no-news candidate drops three quarters of a million dollars on a TV ad.

Pat McGuigan published an interview with Grellner that's worth a read over at the Oklahoma City Sentinel. Grellner is one of the more prominent physicians in Oklahoma who was prescribing Ivermectin to COVID-19 patients (FOX23 news clip). He's one of what you might call the Flynn Caucus candidates: along with fellow Senate hopeful Jackson Lahmeyer and 2nd District candidate John Bennett, he's endorsed by retired general and [brief] Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, and hitting on pretty much the same themes.

For spending $786k, I would have expected his ad, which you can watch below, to be less choppy and better quality, but... anyway:
