OKLAHOMA CITY -

U.S. House Speaker John Boehner has selected a congressional candidate from Oklahoma to deliver the Weekly Republican Radio Address.

Boehner said in a statement Thursday that he's selected Republican Markwayne Mullin to deliver Saturday's address in response to the president's weekly address. Boehner said that -- as a small business owner -- Mullin understands the need to shut down the "jobs-destroying red tape factory in Washington, D.C."

Mullin is a plumber from Westville who faces Democrat Rob Wallace of Fort Gibson for the 2nd Congressional District seat that stretches across 26 counties in eastern Oklahoma. Mullin, Wallace and independent Michael Fulks of Heavener are seeking to replace outgoing U.S. Rep. Dan Boren.

Boren -- the only Democrat in Oklahoma's congressional delegation -- announced last summer he wouldn't run for re-election.
