WASHINGTON - Markwayne Mullin spent nearly $1.6 million to win the eastern Oklahoma congressional seat and wound up with more than $327,000 of debt, according to a new campaign finance report that shows about $99,000 owed to political consultants.
The Adair County Republican, who won all 26 counties in the 2nd District last month to defeat Democrat Rob Wallace and independent Michael Fulks, will replace retiring Democratic Rep. Dan Boren in January.
Mullin, the owner of a plumbing company, loaned his campaign $255,750, and he paid himself back $22,000 from campaign funds on Nov. 24, less than three weeks after the election.
It is legal - and not unusual - for candidates to repay personal campaign loans with money raised from donors. Mullin had made an earlier payment of $5,750 toward the personal loans.
