Democratic challenger takes a swing at Inhofe’s ‘glass jaw’
By RANDY KREHBIEL World Staff Writer
Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Matt Silverstein doesn’t want to hear any more about what a long shot he is against Republican incumbent Jim Inhofe in November.
Yes, the 33-year-old Bixby financial adviser knows the list of those who thought they could beat Jim Inhofe is long.
Yes, he knows the list of those who succeeded is short and yellow with age. The 79-year-old Inhofe, a fixture in Oklahoma politics since the mid-1960s, hasn’t lost an election in 30 years.
Silverstein doesn’t care. He insists Inhofe has a political “glass jaw,” and that he’s just the guy to shatter it.
