Oklahoma Farm Bureau and the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association are set to host a gubernatorial candidate forum on agriculture Wednesday, Oct. 26 from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Comanche County Fairgrounds in Lawton.
Incumbent Republican candidate Gov. Kevin Stitt is confirmed to attend. Democratic candidate Joy Hofmeister has been invited but has not yet confirmed.

OKFB and OCA members are encouraged to attend, and the event is open to the general public.
Michael Kelsey, Executive Vice President for the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association believes this is a tremendous opportunity for people in rural areas to hear more from the candidates on issues that are most relevant to them- things like drought, rural economic developement, medical marijuana grow licenses, rural broadband as well as their view of what the future of agriculture and rural Oklahoma looks like.
