OKLAHOMA CITY -

A professional bass fisherman has announced a bid for Congress, challenging the seat held by incumbent Republican U.S. Representative Markwayne Mullin.

Political novice Darrel Robertson, who's also a Republican, said the values he was taught from infancy "are being mocked in Washington."

Mullin, who owns a plumbing company, won victory in 2012 to fill the seat vacated by moderate Democrat Dan Boren, who decided against running again.

Mullin was part of a new breed of conservative politicians and quickly proved it with a vote against allocating funds for victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Mullin's district stretches across 26 eastern Oklahoma counties, from the foothills of the Ozark Mountains in the northeast to the Red River border with Texas in the south.
