Askins Makes Loan to Campaign

Oklahoma City, OK – Askins loaned her gubernatorial campaign $100,000

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Records show Lt. Gov. Jari Askins loaned her gubernatorial campaign $100,000 in the final days before the July 27 primary.

Askins narrowly defeated Attorney General Drew Edmondson for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. She now faces Republican Congresswoman Mary Fallin in the November election.

The loan brings to $775,000 Askins loaned her campaign. That's about one-third of the $2.28 million she reported raising in filings with state Ethics Commission.
