Three-term Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Westville/ Muskogee) on Wednesday officially eschewed his original campaign promise to serve no more than three terms, and announced that he will seek re-election in 2018. Mr. Mullin has a safe seat, thus his only political danger could come in a Republican primary. With two GOP primary opponents already announced, interestingly both named Jackson, it remains to be seen whether either of these individuals, or a yet unknown potential candidate, will be able to mount a significant challenge. Chances are Mr. Mullin survives the broken term-limit pledge and easily wins re-election.
