A former city councilor and Tulsa mayoral candidate won’t endorse his fellow Republican for the city’s top job. Bill Christiansen calls Dewey Bartlett a RINO, Republican in Name Only, and he will not support Bartlett’s bid for re-election.

Christiansen admits it’s partly personal, citing what he calls attacks on his wife by the Bartlett campaign during the primary. He says, at this time, he is not endorsing candidate Kathy Taylor either.
