So Long Don Nickles, Hello Kirk Humphries
The pragmatic Don Nickles is leaving us after many years in the US Senate. Announcing he would not run for re-election today - the Ponca City native said he wanted to return to the private sector. Although Nickles was extremely conservative he also had a pragmatic streak to him - not a complete idealogue. I'm not sure we'll end up with anyone better.
The Oklahoma Publishing Company (Daily Oklahoman) is not-so-secretly behind Oklahoma City mayor Kirk Humphries and the word is that they want Humphries in Nickles' vacated seat. More on Humphries later.
Any moderates out there wanting to run?
