Markwayne Mullin campaign ends election cycle deep in debt
Markwayne Mullin, the winner of an eastern Oklahoma congressional seat, owed more than $327,000 and had $33,500 in the bank at end of November, according to a new report.
Bridenstine's latest report to the FEC shows that he spent about $156,000 from Oct. 18 to Nov. 26 and ended the period with $38,927 in his campaign account.
Rep. James Lankford, R-Oklahoma City, spent $802,000 on his first re-election campaign and had $440,000 in his campaign account after defeating Democrat Tom Guild, of Edmond. Guild spent $151,000 on his campaign, which ended up with a zero balance and $100,099 in debt to Guild for personal loans.
Rep. Tom Cole, R-Moore, spent nearly $754,000 in the two-year election cycle, and had more than $812,000 in his account at the end of last month, according to the election commission; Cole easily defeated Democrat Donna Bebo and independent R.J. Harris, each of whom spent negligible amounts of money.
Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Cheyenne, spent more than $1.6 million for his race against Democrat Timothy Murray, who spent $198. More than $1 million of Lucas' donations came from political action committees, and a large portion of the money he spent went to other Republican candidates.
