RSLC Releases TV Ad Supporting “Yes” on 790
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) released a TV ad featuring Lieutenant Governor Todd Lamb encouraging Oklahomans to vote “yes” on State Question 790. The multiple six-figure ad buy will run in multiple markets across Oklahoma through Election Day.
“I’m proud to call Oklahoma home – a state where we love our neighbors, respect our differences and work together to make our state the best it can be,” said Lt. Governor Lamb. “These fundamental values are precisely why I believe we most vote ‘yes’ on 790 and get rid of the Blaine Amendment once and for all. Our state should always be a place where religious freedom is encouraged, where prayer is welcome before the big game, where fundamental services are available at all hospitals, and where parents have a wider range of opportunities and choices when planning their children’s education. I am hopeful that this TV ad will continue giving voters the information that they need to move our state forward by voting ‘yes’ on State Question 790 this Election Day.”
“Freedom is the most basic right we have as Americans,” said RSLC President Matt Walter. “I encourage all Oklahomans to vote ‘yes’ on 790 to ensure that this right is respected in the Sooner State. Getting rid of the Blaine Amendment is vital to ensuring that people of faith can continue to provide critical public services – from healthcare to education – that will benefit the entire state. Our new ad sheds a light on what is truly at stake this November. Oklahomans should vote ‘yes’ on State Question 790.”
“Through my work with the national Republican Lieutenant Governors Association, a caucus within the RSLC, I have found that this organization shares our conservative Oklahoma values,” Lamb added. “I am glad that I have been able to enlist their support for this critical issue that is about more than the freedom to acknowledge and display our religious heritage, but is really about protecting the ways our state works together to improve the lives of Oklahomans.”
