Tishomingo Attorney Ponders 2nd District Race

Tishomingo Attorney Dustin Rowe
From The Johnston County Capital-Democrat ~ Following Congressman Dan Boren's announcement last week that he would not seek another term in Oklahoma’s Second District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, several candidates have stepped forward to announce they are either planning or considering a run.

Among those giving such a bid serious consideration is a name already familiar to many throughout Johnston County.

Tishomingo attorney Dustin Rowe (a Republican) told the Capital-Democrat Tuesday morning that he is putting together an exploratory committee to help determine whether he should seek the Republican nomination for Boren’s seat in the 2012 election.

Lynn Windel of Madill, who represented Oklahoma as a member of the Republican National Committee from 1992 to 2008, will chair the exploratory committee.
