OK Lt. Governor Candidates visit Grove

Updated:
GROVE, OKLAHOMA -

Candidates for Oklahoma Lieutenant Governor make a stop in Grove. 

Delaware County Oklahoma Republicans held a candidate forum at the Grove Christian Center. 

Republican candidates Matt Pinnell, Eddie Fields and Dominique Block discussed issues like education funding - taxes - and tribal gaming contracts in the state. 

Gary Kees with Delaware County Oklahoma Republicans, says, "I would say this that we have good candidates. I think the nice thing right now is, on the republican side, we have a lot of good choices. So when you, when you have the choice of two of three good candidates, everybody wins."

One resident says the forum is giving him an opportunity to make a more informed decision.

Jerry Malcolm, Grove Resident, says, "It's one of the few opportunities we're going to get to actually meet them and to understand who they are. When I vote, which I have before in on a candidate it's just been by guess, or name or, ya know like throwing darts. I wanted to know who I was voting for."

Republican candidate Dana Murphy was not at today's forum. 

The Oklahoma Lieutenant Governor election takes place during the general election, on November 6th.
