It's a contest for Congress in the race to Washington D.C. for Oklahoma's U.S House District 2.
Republicans Markwayne Mullin and George Faught faced-off Monday night at Rogers State University in Claremore.
It's both Mullin and Faught's first time to run for Congress.
In June's primary, Mullin won by 19 percent of the vote.
Businessman Mullin prides himself on his Oklahoma mentality. He married his high school sweetheart 14 years ago and his sons are continuing his tradition of wrestling.
"W e've got enough people who understand the system," Mullin said. "What about understanding the issues? That's what a representative is for.”
George Faught also owns his business and has for 25 years. Faught is a state representative and has been for six years.
"There's not a learning curve with the situations facing our country," Faught said. "With the spending and with the serious nature of our issues, we have to send someone prepared to work from day one.”
The run-off for Mullin and Faught is August 28, along with Democrats Wayne Herriman and Rob Wallace.
