TEA Party hosting political candidate meet-and-greet


The Grady County Tea Party is hosting a meet and greet with state and local candidates and forum with some of the candidates vying for Sen. Tom Coburn's unexpired seat tomorrow.

The meet-and-greet event will begin at 5 p.m. at the Grady County Fairgrounds.

Gubernatorial candidate Joe Dorman (D-Rush Springs), District 56 State Rep. David Perryman (D-Chickasha), and District 56 State Rep. candidate Chuck Utsler (R-Pocasset) are among the elected officials and candidates that will be at the event.

U.S. Senate candidates James Lankford (R-Bethany), Kevin Crow (R-Chickasha) and Randy Brogdon (R-Tulsa) will participate in a question-and-answer forum.

Mark Keeling of the Grady County Tea Party said his group hosted a candidate meet and greet four years ago in the gymnasium of the Chickasha First Assembly of God and its success prompted them to choose a bigger venue in the fairgrounds.

"We want people to have an avenue to see their elected officials and let people know about these hard-working grass-roots groups," Keeling said.

The Norman and OKC Tea Parties, as well as other groups will have questions prepared for the forum, and people are encouraged to ask questions of the candidates, he said.
