David B Hooten

Oklahoma County Clerk David B. Hooten launched his campaign for state treasurer Thursday at the state Capitol.
Hooten is the first to publicly express plans to run in 2022. Current Treasurer Randy McDaniel announced June 1 he would not seek reelection.
Hooten said during the announcement that running for treasurer is “the right next step.”
“This will be the next step because the treasurer’s office is handling assets, not only in money but in personnel, and I think we have a proven record of doing that very successfully,” he said.
Hooten added that he hopes to maintain the high standards that McDaniel and previous treasurers have exhibited.

Hooten previously ran for state senate for District 40 in 2014. He was defeated in the primary.
