OKLAHOMA CITY — Newly elected Oklahoma Congressman Markwayne Mullin owes about $327,000 in campaign debt, according to a campaign finance report.
Mullin, a Republican, spent nearly $1.6 million in his successful campaign for the seat being vacated by Democrat Dan Boren and had $33,509 in the bank on Nov. 26, according to a report filed Thursday with the Federal Election Commission.
Mullin defeated Democrat Rob Wallace and Independent Michael Fulks in the November general election.
Wallace, of Fort Gibson, spent nearly $1.2 million on his race and ended with less than $7,000 in the bank. He reported no debts.
Mullin, a plumbing company owner, loaned his campaign $255,750, and he repaid himself $22,000 from campaign funds on Nov. 24, less than three weeks after the election, after making an earlier payment of $5,750 toward the personal loans.
