A new Senate seat in south-central Oklahoma draws candidates focused on rural-conservative values
In what is essentially a new Senate seat in south-central Oklahoma, created by the new redistricting that moved it out of Oklahoma County, two first-time politicians — Corey Brooks and Mike Fullerton — will face off on Nov. 6 in the general election.

Brooks, a rancher who is in the Navy Reserve, said education is an important issue for him as well.
“Our education system is a key component in economic growth,” he said, “not just from the workforce development, but as an attractor for outside business looking to grow in Oklahoma.”
Fullerton said he also will push for additional resources for building and repairing the state's infrastructure.
“I'm a conservative Democrat,” Fullerton said. “I grew up in south Oklahoma. I am an NRA member. … This senate seat, it's not just about Team Republican or Team Democrat or Team Legislature, it's about District 43, which is made up of families with a common thread of being Oklahomans with rural traditional values.”
Brooks said he has been telling voters that Oklahoma is doing well economically due to the conservative leadership in office.
“I am going to continue to move Oklahoma forward with development that is friendly to small businesses and working on our education system,” he said.
