Despite Campaign Pledge, Markwayne Mullin Seeks Fourth Term

Jul 5, 2017

Oklahoma U.S. Representative Markwayne Mullin is running for a fourth term, despite his campaign promise that he would only serve for three terms.

Mullin says his original decision was due to concerns about the impact of Congress on his family and their business, but now he says his family is doing well, and he has a better understanding of politics.

Mullin says he understands that people may be upset because he didn’t stand by his campaign promise, but he hopes to make a difference under President Trump’s administration.

Mullin serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and will be up for reelection in 2018.
