Pinnell Again Leads Fundraising Race for Lieutenant Governor
Conservative Leader Nearly Doubles Career Politician Opponents With More
Than $100,000 Raised in 4th Quarter and Over $580,000 Raised to Date
Tulsa, OK – Republican Lieutenant Governor candidate, entrepreneur, and small business owner Matt Pinnell announced today his campaign finished the fourth quarter fundraising period of 2017, raising $113,739.76 – nearly doubling the amount raised by his opponents combined.
“I am encouraged and incredibly grateful for the continued support from hardworking Oklahomans around our state,” said Pinnell. “It is clear voters are tired of the status quo – empty promises from career politicians who claim to have new ideas or a fresh perspective but are really only interested in climbing the next rung on the taxpayer-funded ladder.”
“Each and every day, we are crisscrossing the Sooner State – listening to voters, building our army of grassroots leaders in all 77 counties and sharing our vision of conservative leadership that Oklahoma families and small businesses deserve.”
A former chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party and national grassroots leader for the Trump campaign, Pinnell has also earned an impressive list of conservative endorsements, including Congressman Jim Bridenstine, Congressman Steve Russell, philanthropist Ann Felton, Insurance Commissioner John Doak, former Republican National Committeemen Steve Fair and Lynn Windel, and the first Republican woman Floor Leader in state history, Pam Peterson.
