“We still have a campaign to run. It’s important that we take our conservative message out across the district.  It’s very, very important that we maintain that.  I think when we put power in the hands of people, they can get the job done” said Russell.

McAffrey believes he is the underdog in this race.

“We know that we are an underdog, we know that it’s a battle. That’s okay because we can do the same thing.  Because Oklahomans need a voice in Washington,” said McAffrey.
