(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Several candidates for governor say they'll begin this week to flood Oklahoma airwaves with campaign messages.

They say it probably won't stop until the primary elections in three weeks.

Spokesmen say Republican Steve Largent and Democrats Kelly Haney, Brad Henry and Vince Orza are all starting media blitzes.

Largent leads all candidates in fund-raising with more than $2-million. Orza leads the Democrats with more than $900,000.

Democrat James Lamkin of Bixby and Republican Andrew Marr of Norman say they're not going to raise any funds. The GOP's Jim Denny of Oklahoma City reports no cash on hand but says he isn't worrying about it.
