Larry SturgillNote that with over $238,000 reported by Matt Silverstein, this has potential to eclipse what 2008 U.S. Senate Candidate Andrew Rice had up to April 2008, when Laura Clawson reported he raced $431,000 total at that time.
Count me as a Republican for Silverstein.

This difference this time is that Matt Silverstein has a potential to be an even more credible candidate than Rice was in 2006.
Okiedem51 commented on one of my previous diaries the following about Silverstein:
I've met Matt, too (0+ / 0-)Now here's the big question: At some point, will Michael Bennet and the DSCC get involved?
And he's so much more viable than Andrew Rice it isn't worth mentioning. Rice ran admitting he was a liberal and was on the same ballot as Obama.
Matt is a businessman who is attacking Inhofe for wasteful spending and clearly draws a line between smart investing in things like education and science and wasteful spending like Inhofe handing out contracts to his buddies who fund his campaign.
Another thing Matt has that Rice did not -- GOOD POLLSTERS and FIRE in the belly.

Here's the first video I found of Matt Silverstein speaking. He's sure fired up!
In addition, Silverstein also has this posted on his Facebook page to indicate what kind of person he would be as U.S. Senator:
Matt Silverstein Talks Marriage Equality and More:
Matt Silverstein writes letter to Google CEO Larry Page on fundraiser for James Inhofe:
For someone who is running in arguably the reddest state in the U.S. (unless you argue Alabama, Arkansas or Kansas take the prize), Silverstein certainly doesn't seem to be a bad candidate.
So if you're living in Oklahoma and need to have a reason to be fired up, why not get fired up about defeating the climate change denying ringleader (aka James Inhofe)?
