"He does so much for his district and is very active in the community, I believe he would and could be one of the best governors Oklahoma has had," commented Renae Dahl-Pruitt. "My vote is for him all the way.
Rob Vollmar said he doesn't always agree with Dorman, but supports his consistency in representing his constituency.
"Rep. Dorman has shown consistently that he represents the people of his district, not a particular ideology," he said. "I may not agree with him on every issue but the man is engaged, intelligent and pro-active in finding solutions rather than just laying blame. He's got my vote."
Fallin's plan to have local school districts raise property taxes to fund shelters is unfair and doesn't accurately represent the Oklahoman's as a whole, according to Cox.
"What she is asking us to do is cut out a large number of residents in Oklahoma that aren't property owners," he said. "Property owners will have to pay for something that others won't."
Cox said the prospect of not having storm shelters in all schools is archaic, and he hopes Dorman will have the chance to tackle it.
Dorman has not officially announced he will run, but started holding town hall meetings via telephone about his potential campaign last night. Those interested in Dorman can log on to joedorman.com for more information.
