Presidential Contender Comes to Tulsa


People line up near Barnes and Noble on 41st street in Tulsa awaiting Ben Carson, who is holding a book signing. It’s not officially a campaign stop, but Carson is among the leaders in the Republican presidential field. Outside the bookstore are John, his wife Shannon, and daughter Sheila. John says he needs more information about Carson’s stances before he makes up his mind, but Sheila and Shannon are already on board.                                 

Carson holds the number two spot in the GOP race behind Donald Trump. Oklahoma has not voted for a Democratic Presidential nominee since Lyndon Johnson so the Republican nominee will definitely hold an edge in the Sooner State.
