    Rep. Dan Boren, the only Democrat in Oklahoma's seven-person congressional delegation, will not run for re-election in 2012, leaving open a seat that spans much of eastern Oklahoma.

    Wayne you sorry bastard, I will never ever forgive you and Chris Cox for trying to save the Democrat's asses in this election. Actually I figured you out when you endorsed Brad Carson over Tom Coburn in Oklahoma's Senate election a few years ago. At the same time you endorsed Arlen Specter over Pat Toomey. I can't believe you now have the gall to try to sell me something. Just bugger off. Sincerely, OKSooner, "Northeastern Oklahoma"

    This may be a repost but an important one.Alexandria, VA) – Even though President Bush took the oath of office last week, taxpayers still have one piece of unfinished business from the election: some federal lawmakers – including many seeking higher office – received thousands of dollars in salary overpayments for being away from their jobs during 2003 and 2004. According to a study released today by the 350,000-member National Taxpayers Union (NTU), an obscure federal statute still on the books requires Congressional absentees to forfeit their pay unless they or a family member are ill; but leaders have failed...

    If any other Okie Freepers want to help spread the word about Brad Carson's liberal record let me know. Brad Carson has been traveling the state telling voters he's a conservative Dem when nothing could be further from the truth. Combat the out of state political operatives!

Email me if you want to help in other areas around the state. Help from other parts of the state would be great!!!

According to the Los Angeles Times, some of the party's most promising U.S. Senate candidates in the South opted to stay home and campaign in an effort to avoid being connected to their party's far-left nominees. Wrote the Times, "Many have staked out positions on such issues...
