Former OKGOP Chairman Matt Pinnell sent the following email out this afternoon, announcing his candidacy for Lieutenant Governor:

When I graduated from Oral Roberts University I was challenged and reminded to “make no little plans.” Those words have driven me ever since.

For the last several months my family, friends, and fellow Oklahomans have encouraged me to continue a lifelong fight — making Oklahoma a place where our children and grandchildren can prosper and succeed for generations to come.

That’s why I’m excited to tell you I’m running to be Oklahoma’s next Lieutenant Governor in 2018!

Did we blow up a North Korean test missile on Sunday? Last month The New York Times said Trump inherited a cyber-warfare button. Here’s a CNN story reporting how it might work: “There is a very strong belief that the US — through cyber methods — has been successful on several occasions in interrupting these sorts
