Bass fisherman announces bid in Oklahoma House race

TULSA (AP) — A professional bass fisherman has announced a bid for Congress, challenging the seat held by incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin.

Political novice Darrel Robertson, who’s also a Republican, says the values he was taught from infancy “are being mocked in Washington.”

Mullin, who owns a plumbing company, won victory in 2012 to fill the seat vacated by moderate Democrat Dan Boren, who decided against running again.

Mullin was part of a new breed of conservative politicians and quickly proved it with a vote against allocating funds for victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Mullin’s district stretches across 26 eastern Oklahoma counties — from the foothills of the Ozark Mountains in the northeast to the Red River border with Texas in the south.
