As the Nov. 6 election approaches, candidates across the nation are preparing to prove to their constituents that they deserve votes for their particular office. Here at ORU, Oklahoma’s District 1 candidates recently debated in Studio1 of the Mabee Center (Baby Mabee) for their spot in Congress.
The candidates included Democrat John Olson, Republican Jim Bridenstine and Independent Craig Allen. Oklahoma’s District 1 consists of Tulsa, Wagoner and Washington counties. KOTV news anchors Scott Thompson and Terry Hood moderated the Oct. 1 event as the three candidates discussed their views on current issues.
