Today, Sean Hannity interviewed Oklahoma congressional candidate George Faught on his nationally-syndicated radio show, and spoke about the 2nd District runoff election between Faught and his opponent Markwayne Mullin.
During the interview, and at last night's GOP Runoff debate in Claremore, Faught mentioned MullinFacts.com and the importance of vetting the Republican nominee now versus November.
On the Hannity Show, Sean and Faught agreed on issues affecting Oklahoma voters, specifically energy reform and pushing back big government regulations that negatively affect economic growth.
George Faught and Markwayne Mullin met in the runoff for the first time yesterday for a debate. Last night's debate at the RSU campus was attended by Faught and Mullin supporters along with Oklahoma Republican Party Leadership and media.
Many in the audience stated they were impressed with Faught's knowledge of the issues and his ability to connect with the voters of District 2. Some expressed concern at Mr. Mullin's lack of understanding, specifically when he stated he would not write any bills if he is elected to Congress. Additionally some felt like he is deliberately being dishonest with the voters about his relationship with Timothy Lee Saylor.
Mr. Faught asked Mr. Mullin about the ATF raid on Mullin Plumbing in 2009 and Mr. Mullin dodged the question. Faught directed viewers to MullinFacts.com for more information regarding the open case.
Faught said, "Although it is painful to hear the truth, we as conservative Republicans are responsible for vetting our candidates before our nominee is chosen. The voters of District 2 need to have this conversation now, not in October when it is too late. The Democrats are already talking about this issue and cannot wait to use it against Mr. Mullin. If Mr. Mullin is our nominee, Republicans lose the opportunity to win this seat in November."
Faught continued, "We need to be talking about cutting spending, balancing the budget, repealing Obamacare and creating jobs. I hope Mr. Mullin will agree to more debates so the voters can hear his opinion on the issues affecting Eastern Oklahomans."
