Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson , a Democrat, made his exploratory campaign for governor official Wednesday.

In his announcement speech, Edmondson expressed a desire to turn around state statistics including its high rate of teen pregnancy, incarcerated women, and high school dropouts.  

“I believe in Oklahoma … I believe our state is the best place in America to live and raise a family and there’s no reason we can’t make Oklahoma number one in the right categories instead of the wrong ones,” Edmondson said during several campaign stops June 10, according to his prepared remarks.
