Oklahoma's Republican Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb has filed paperwork indicating his plan to run for governor in 2018, a year in which nearly every statewide elected office will be open because of term limits.
Lamb filed a statement of organization on Friday with the Oklahoma Ethics Commission and issued a statement in which he said he was "strongly considering" running in 2018.
Oklahoma's current Gov. Mary Fallin is term limited.
An Enid native and a former state senator, the 45-year-old Lamb was elected lieutenant governor in 2010.
