Tulsa, OK – U.S. Congressional candidate Kevin Hern, businessman of Tulsa, has reported contributions totaling $242,690, outperforming all of his opponents combined.

Longtime Tulsa GOP activist and Finance Chairman of Hern for Congress, Frazier Henke IV, states, “Kevin believes the dysfunction and incompetence in Washington must end and will work to bring jobs and decency back to America. He will fight the government’s intervention into our everyday lives and will be a strong advocate for conservative values. His self-made rise from poverty to major business success is the type of experience we need in Washington right now and I am honored to be on his team.”
Kevin is a proven and tested leader. His greatest love is to his help aspiring entrepreneurs create new businesses so they can pursue the American dream.
