Governor Mary Fallin is kicking off her campaign for re-election by hitting the road in an effort that she said will bring her message right to the people.

Governor Fallin started her "Mary on the Move" campaign at Pops in Arcadia. She said there's still work to be done. She wants to make government more efficient while continuing to lower the unemployment rate. 

Fallin said the state has created more than 100,000 jobs and one of the main focuses, along with education, is keeping those jobs coming to Oklahoma.

"One of the biggest things we've got to continue to focus on is making Oklahoma as business-friendly as possible, especially as it relates to keeping our taxes low, focusing on fair regulations, making sure we have an educated workforce and giving our children the very best education possible in our state," Fallin said.

Governor Fallin's campaign will be spent hitting several communities throughout the state for the next three months.

Fallin's democratic opponent Joe Dorman aired his first commercial of the general election. He's also focusing on fixing education, providing strong leadership and being in touch with Oklahomans.
