Republican state Sen. Randy Brogdon on Saturday announced his campaign for Oklahoma governor, complicating Republican Rep. Mary Fallin’s own quest for the party’s nomination.

“I’m Randy Brogdon. I’m a conservative and I’m running for governor,” Brogdon announced April 18 at the state party GOP convention in Oklahoma City.  

Fallin, also a conservative, was re-elected in November to a second term representing the Oklahoma City-area 5th District. Fallin retains a statewide profile stemming from her service as Oklahoma’s lieutenant governor from 1995 to 2007.
