By Kim Archer, Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise
Bartlesville native John B. Kane has announced he will challenge Rep. Wendi Stearman, R-Collinsville, for the Oklahoma House District 11 seat next year.
Stearman won the 2020 Republican primary against incumbent Derrel Fincher and handily beat Democrat Emilie Tindle on Nov. 3 in the House district's first general election since 2004.
"There's no axe to grind. I think I align pretty well with my opponent on issues. I've been a lifelong conservative both fiscally and socially and I think that represents our district well," Kane said.
