Gov. Mary Fallin declines OU invitation for second debate with Dorman
By BARBARA HOBEROCK World Capitol Bureau
OKLAHOMA CITY – Gov. Mary Fallin on Wednesday declined an invitation for a second debate to be held at the University of Oklahoma.
Her opponent, Rep. Joe Dorman, D-Rush Springs, had accepted the offer made earlier this week in an editorial in the campus newspaper.
“We are disappointed,” said OU Daily editor Blayklee Buchanan, 21. “We really hope to see the candidates come debate on our campus and give students that direct access to the candidates so they can vote from an educated standpoint.”
Fallin, a Republican, and Dorman, will be on the Nov. 4 ballot, along with independents Richard Prawdzienski of Edmond and Kimberly Willis of Oklahoma City.
