Tulsa Area State Senators Support Lankford 

Oklahoma City- James Lankford’s commitment to bringing power back to the states and to Oklahoma families has Tulsa Area State Senators supporting Lankford for U.S. Senate.

Today, several Tulsa Metro Oklahoma State Senators released the following statements endorsing Lankford:

“I endorse James Lankford with confidence because I know he will fight for Oklahoma’s working families and small businesses during tough economic times, while standing up for Oklahoma values and the Right to Life at all times.”

State Senator Rick Brinkley, District 34

“Oklahoma families have been presented with difficult decisions as the economy struggles to recover. I know that James Lankford shares my belief that government should not make decisions even more challenging for our families, and I trust him to fight for lower taxes and responsible spending on behalf of Oklahoma taxpayers.”

State Senator Mike Mazzei, District 25

“I’m excited to see the groundswell of support for James Lankford in our great state. More than ever, it’s critical that we send leaders to Washington, D.C. who understand what matters to Oklahomans because they’re listening to us and working on our behalf. James Lankford will be that type of leader in the U.S. Senate.”

State Senator Dan Newberry, District 37 

“As a small business owner, I believe it is important to elect someone who will fight to keep federal agencies from burdening our businesses with massive regulations that are stifling economic growth and job creation in our state. Because of his managerial experience, his passion for our state, and his commitment to our hardworking families, I’m proud to endorse James Lankford.”

State Senator Gary Stanislawski, District 35

Leaders at the Oklahoma Capitol see firsthand the consequences for Oklahoma families when the federal government takes on too much power. These State Senators have chosen Lankford as the candidate who will fight to give Oklahomans back their freedom and protect them from intrusion by the federal government.

“It is an honor to have the support of fellow lawmakers who understand the challenges facing our nation and our state. Since entering Congress three years ago, I have fought tirelessly for Oklahomans to have the power to make decisions regarding their own families and communities,” Lankford said.

Lankford authored a bill to return healthcare oversight fully to the states which has continued to gain momentum across the country, now supported by nine states.

“Decisions about our children’s education, our families’ healthcare and our local businesses, are better when they are made locally and are more accountable to the people,” Lankford concluded.

In addition to the Tulsa Area State Senators, Lankford’s conservative policies and commitment to hard work has gained him the support of many groups of Oklahomans, including leaders in Oklahoma Agriculture, Energy, Transportation, and Veterans.
