OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — U.S. House Speaker John Boehner has selected a congressional candidate from Oklahoma to deliver the Weekly Republican Radio Address.
Boehner said in a statement Thursday that he's selected Republican Markwayne Mullin to deliver Saturday's address in response to the president's weekly address. Boehner said that — as a small business owner — Mullin understands the need to shut down the "jobs-destroying red tape factory in Washington, D.C."

COWETA, Okla. (AP) — The three candidates running for Oklahoma's 1st congressional seat have appeared together at a debate in Coweta sponsored by the Coweta Chamber of Commerce.
Republican Jim Bridenstine said during Wednesday's forum that voters have a choice between a conservative government that he supports or what he called liberal policies supported by Democrat John Olson.
Olson told the crowd of a few dozen at the Assembly of God Church there is a stark difference between himself and Bridenstine. Olson called himself a "workhorse, not a show pony."
