Shauna Lawyer Struby
When I first met Ed Shadid in 2011, he was running for Oklahoma City’s Ward 2 council seat. I expected the standard superficial political gesture and thrust out my hand, saying, “Nice to meet you, Dr. Shadid.” He met my eyes directly, shook my hand and responded, “Please, just call me Ed.”

News

Kelley Chambers
Name recognition and experience can spell an easy victory for the incumbent in a political race, but experts said there can be downsides when running against an opponent who has no record to defend and other candidates who perhaps no one has ever heard of.

Letters to the Editor

Merle D. Wright
The Senatorial candidate T.W. Shannon knows what it takes to get elected in Oklahoma, with his TV ad having a well-placed cross behind him as he tells us how good he is.
