OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma's Republican Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb filed paperwork Friday to run for governor in 2018 when nearly every statewide elected office will be open because of term limits.
Lamb filed a statement of organization with the Oklahoma Ethics Commission and issued a statement in which he said he was "strongly considering" running in 2018.
"Since being elected lieutenant governor in 2010 I have visited each of Oklahoma's 77 counties on an annual basis, listening and talking to Oklahomans regarding issues of importance to them and our great state," Lamb said.
