Broken Arrow State Senator Nathan Dahm will announce his intention to run for First District Congress at an event Friday morning, TheOkie.com has confirmed.

The 34-year-old was first elected to Senate District 33 in 2012. He serves as a Majority Whip and chairs the General Government committee. Dahm has previously run for US Congress in the 2010 primary.
