At least three people want to be the next chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party.

The Tulsa World reports that party Vice Chairwoman Estela Hernandez, Robert Hubbard of Yukon and Pam Pollard of Midwest City are seeking the post that became vacant when former state Sen. Randy Brogdon of Owasso stepped down as chairman.

Hernandez is serving as interim chairwoman. The 38-year-old Hernandez, who owns a small business with her husband, says she wants to build relationships within the party and will be an effective fundraiser.

Hubbard has run unsuccessfully for governor and the U.S. House. The 71-year-old is an entrepreneur who has a cattle and horse operation.

The 55-year-old Pollard is president of the Oklahoma Federation of Republican Women.

A new party leader will be selected Oct. 11.
