Governor Henry Endorses LT. Gov. Askins

After a historic outcome in the Oklahoma gubernatorial primary, the stage is set for Oklahoma's first female Governor.

Now the current Governor Brad Henry is throwing his support behind fellow Democrat and his current Lieutenant Governor Jari Askins.

He says he plans a more formal announcement for Askins in a few weeks.

Askins narrowly won the Democratic nomination for Governor in Tuesday's primary.

She goes head to head with U.S. Representative Mary Fallin, winner of the Republican primary election.

The election is November second.
