If a real estate mogul can become president, why can’t a mortgage banking executive become governor of Oklahoma

If a real estate mogul can become president, why can’t a mortgage banking executive become governor of Oklahoma?
 
According to a Tulsa World report, Gateway Mortgage Group founder and CEO Kevin Stitt has registered a candidate committee with the aim of pursuing the Republican nomination in Oklahoma’s 2018 gubernatorial race. Stitt, who never held elected office, is the sixth person to join the Republican race and the twelfth person to become part of the overall campaign for governor.
 
“This campaign is about growth,” Stitt said. “I built my business; now I want to grow our economy and give teachers the tools they need to make our schools and children successful. Our state’s problems are too large to ignore. I’m running for governor because I believe we need new leadership to turn our state around.”
 
Stitt added he would begin a listening tour around Oklahoma to get input from voters on the issues that matter to them. “I want to hear their thoughts on education and economic development,” he said. “Oklahomans will see I am the only candidate in this race who has the business experience to make the necessary changes so Oklahoma can be number one.”
