TULSA, OK -- It's an election year in Tulsa, but with less than six months until the filing period no one has stepped forward to challenge Democratic Mayor Kathy Taylor.

But at least two Republicans say they are considering runs: former state Sen. James Williamson and City Councilor Bill Martinson.

Williamson, an attorney who also was a candidate for governor, says he expects to make his decision within the next six weeks.

Williamson says he's concerned about some of the directions the city has taken. But Williamson says Taylor is a "formidable opponent for anyone" because of her personal wealth.

Martinson, a councilor since 2005 and a partner in a manufacturing company, says he's thinking about running because people have asked him to.
