In a muted debate lacking the personal attacks of both campaigns, the two major party candidates for Oklahoma’s second congressional district provided little policy specifics. Republican Markwayne Mullin and Democrat Rob Wallace instead stuck to familiar talking points at Rogers State University. Here’s Wallace when asked how to grow paychecks for families…
“And so we can’t continue to do the same thing over and over again. And that’s continue to pour billions of dollars from the government into Wall Street and expect it to show up down here on Main Street.”
Republican Mullin responded that government is the indisputable problem…
“The only thing they need to do is get out of our way. We’ll go to work, it’s just move, get out the way.”
Democrat Dan Boren is leaving the job at the end of the term, making it the only open congressional seat in the state. This is the only debate before Election Day next Tuesday.
