Dan Boren opines about future possibilities
By Mick Hinton, Norman Transcript
When Dan Boren was asked whether he might some day run for Oklahoma governor like his father, he said Tuesday, “I wouldn’t rule it out.”
Boren, a former U.S. representative from Oklahoma, addressed older students attending a University of Oklahoma session about what it was like being part of three generations of Borens who had each served as Democrat politicians.
The speaker’s comment about a governor’s race drew instant applause from about 130 people attending the event when he opined about the future.
Dan Boren’s father is OU President David Boren, a former Oklahoma governor and also a former U.S. Senator.
President Boren sat in the front row of the classroom and did not speak until his son finished his morning address.
