July 27, 2010 marked the highest voter turnout in Republican history.98,159 votes for Randy Brogdon translated in to almost 40% of the votes cast in the GOP primary.Although those numbers didn’t vault him to a win, he says he was humbled by the support of so many.“Not bad for a guy who only had 1% name recognition in April 2009” said Brogdon.
Amid reports that Rep. Fallin had gone to Washington to cast a vote on military funding for the War in Afghanistan, and may not return until late on election night, Brogdon placed his congratulatory call at 10:32 PM.He congratulated Rep. Fallin on her victory and commended her on the campaign, and then asked if they could meet in the coming days to discuss issues facing the state.Rep. Fallin agreed to the meeting and left it to campaign staff to work out the time and date.
Late Thursday afternoon Brogdon issued this statement:
“Donna and I are taking a much needed mini vacation to catch up on our sleep and spend some quiet time with each other. Mary Fallin and I have been in contact and we have a meeting scheduled next week to discuss the Governor’s race as well as some key issues. I will be in the fight for liberty for a long time to come.”
The meeting will take place at the campaign headquarters of Fallin for Governor in Oklahoma City on Wednesday August 4, 2010 at 11:00 AM.
A press conference is scheduled to take place immediately following the meeting at 4308 N. Classen Blvd.Oklahoma City, OK73118.
