Markwayne Mullin Career
The only senator who is still in office without at least a bachelor’s degree is Mullin. Mullin was the host of House Talk, a home improvement radio show aired throughout Oklahoma, on Tulsa station KFAQ when he was first elected to Congress in 2012.
In addition to Mullin Plumbing, Mullin owned Mullin Properties, Mullin Farms, and Mullin Services when he was elected to Congress. He declared revenue from two family businesses of between $200,000 and $2 million in 2012, plus an additional $15,000 to $50,000 from bank shares he owned.
Mullin’s stated assets at the end of 2020 ranged from $7.3 million to $29.9 million; by the end of 2021, they were in the range of $31.6 million to $75.6 million.
His plumbing-related businesses were sold to HomeTown Services, a multi-state residential heating, air conditioning, plumbing, and electrical company, which resulted in an increase. According to Mullin, the sale took place early in 2021, during his time in the House of Representatives.
Representing the 2nd Congressional District, incumbent U.S. Representative Dan Boren declared in June 2011 that he would step down from his position at the end of 2012. Mullin announced his candidacy for the position in September 2011.
Mullin received 42% of the vote in the six-candidate Republican primary, while state lawmaker George Faught received 23% of the vote. In Oklahoma, winning a congressional nomination requires a majority, therefore a runoff was conducted, and Mullin defeated Faught 57% to 43%.
Historically a “Yellow Dog” Democratic district, its northernmost half had seen a steady Republican tendency as Tulsa’s suburbs grew.
Mullin was therefore seen as having a strong chance of winning the election. With 57% of the vote, he defeated Democratic candidate and former district attorney Rob Wallace. Since Tom Coburn left the district in 2001, Mullin was the first Republican to hold that office.
With 70% of the vote, Mullin won reelection in 2014, defeating Democrat Earl Everett, who received 24.6% of the vote. Mullin defeated Jarrin Jackson in the Republican primary in June 2016 by a margin of 27 percentage points.
He defeated Democrat Joshua Harris-Till by 47 percentage points in the general election held in November.
Mullin made the pledge to serve only three terms (six years) when he originally filed for Congress in 2012. However, in July 2017, he announced via a video that he would seek a fourth term in 2018, claiming that his pledge to serve only three terms was a mistake.
Former US senator Tom Coburn declared he would try to remove Mullin from office after Mullin broke this pledge. Mullin received 54% of the vote in a four-way Republican primary and 65% of the vote in November to win reelection.
Mullin received 79.9% of the vote in the 2020 Republican primary and 75% of the vote in November to win reelection.
A special election will be required to complete U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe’s remaining term because he declared in February 2022 that he would step down from his position at the end of the 117th United States Congress on January 3, 2023. Mullin declared his intention to contest in the special election.
In the Senate HELP Committee hearing on the PRO Act on March 8, 2023, Mullin charged Teamsters president Sean O’Brien of “intimidation” by stating that O’Brien was pressuring union members to pay dues and that union leaders had tried to unionize his plumbing firm.
