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.
Oklahoma's current Republican Gov. Mary Fallin can't seek a third term in office because of term limits.
