TULSA, OK -- A one time Tulsa mayoral candidate has announced he is no longer running.
Businessman Clay Clark released a statement Friday indicating he is withdrawing his name in order to join Chris Medlock's campaign.
"In my attempt to truly put priorities over politics, I feel as though joining the Chris Medlock campaign will provide Tulsa with the best chance to secure conservative leadership in the Mayor's office. After talking with our supporters and directly to Chris, it has become apparent that Chris and I agree on nearly all the major issues facing Tulsa," said Clay Clark. "I believe that running against Chris would split the truly conservative vote, which would lead to the Mayor Taylor supporting candidate (Mr. Bartlett) being elected, and that would be like voting for Kathy Taylor Part 2."
Clark says that he will be joining the Medlock campaign on a full-time basis and that he has agreed to oversee the Internet Marketing and small business development aspects of the Medlock campaign.
Clark announced in May that he would run for the mayor of Tulsa.
