Jeff Hall, a Republican from Mooreland, Okla., announced his candidacy for State Senate District 27 last week.
An Army veteran, Hall was raised in Northwest Oklahoma, where his family has roots for several generations. Hall served two tours of duty in Iraq, and retired from service in 2014. Hall currently owns a small business in Guymon.
In a press release, Hall indicated that he feared the GOP was “squandering its opportunity to lead.”
“I am running to lend a disciplined voice to a legislature that seems out of focus,” he wrote. “We need to get our great State of Oklahoma back on track.”
