“As Edmond Mayor and Oklahoma Corporation Commissioner, Patrice has been a great partner at the State House.

Cooksey said.

“Politics in Washington requires toughness, intelligence, attention to detail and perseverance. The best person I know for this mission is Patrice Douglas. Legislating is tough business. The target moves all the time. It requires skill, patience the ability to build relationships, trust and Patrice Douglas is uniquely qualified to represent this great district. It will be done with class, smarts and talent. Leadership with grace and a firm hand. I want Patrice Douglas to represent me in Washington,” Rep. Moore said.

Douglas commended the dedicated the service of Grau, Cooksey, Moore, and Wood. “As a longtime fifth district resident, I applaud their commitment to public service and ensuring that our government in Oklahoma City works for the people. I am grateful for their vocal support and commitment to the conservative values we all share – lower taxes, a balanced budget, and smaller government. I am proud to stand with them as our campaign marches on to August 26 and beyond to November.”
