Republican Markwayne Mullin wants to see a true balanced budget
The Republican owner of a successful plumbing business says he decided to run for the Oklahoma District 2 congressional seat being vacated by Dan Boren because he was tired of regulations on small business and political gridlock in Washington.
WASHINGTON — Markwayne Mullin said he went to college for one reason — to wrestle.
After he got injured, he returned home to Adair County without finishing his degree and got married. Looking for work, he decided to take over a plumbing business his father had started.
It was a company of six, Mullin said, with $500,000 of debt — $250,000 of it past due.
