4 will become 2: District 2 voters will choose nominees for General Election

CLAREMORE — Election Day is Tuesday and Rogers County residents will be deciding who will be facing off in the general election for Oklahoma’s 2nd Congressional District.

Additionally, some area residents that live in the Justus-Tiawah school district will be voting to decide if two bond issues will pass.
The bond issues will be used to fund transportation needs and to build a new gymnasium for the district.
The voters will once again have the opportunity to make a big impact and let their voices be heard.
The congressional candidates Republicans George Faught and Markwayne Mullin have been battling for weeks as both candidates strive to get their message out to voters.
Democratic candidates Wayne Herriman and Rob Wallace have likewise found the campaign trail to often times be a little difficult to navigate.
Through a series of issues and often negative attacks the four men have provided a snapshot of what they feel voters should keep in mind when going to the polls.

“We are facing a crucial election Tuesday for Congressional District 2. It is important to elect someone who is prepared, has invested in our district, understands the issues and has a proven conservative record fighting for the Oklahoma values we all have in common. George Faught fits those qualifications and he can win in November,” Faught said.
Faught is a lifelong resident of Muskogee who chose to raise his family and build his business in the 2nd District. 
A 25-year business owner who simultaneously served six years as state representative from the Muskogee area, George Faught has the much needed experience to start work in Congress from day one. In these critical times, we don’t have time for “on the job training”.
“Our nation needs proven leaders who are willing to fight for our values and freedoms,” Faught said.
