Lt. Col. Steve Russell, GOP Candidate for Oklahoma’s 5th Congressional District, is proud to announce the endorsement of Oklahoma State Auditor, and former State GOP Chairman, Gary Jones.

“Col. Steve Russell is the proven principled conservative leader we need in Washington fighting for our Oklahoma families,” says Gary Jones. “Steve is committed to solving the tough problems facing our nation, like securing our borders and getting control of our national debt. Steve’s knowledge of the Constitution, foreign policy, and his proven leadership skills are desperately needed in these uncertain times.”

Steve Russell considers the endorsement to be a great honor.

“Gary Jones is the gold standard for responsible government,” says Russell. “We have worked together since I first set foot in politics. He encouraged me to run for office and I will always admire his resolve to fight for fiscal transparency and accountability. Gary Jones and I see eye-to-eye on the importance of eliminating fraud and waste in government.”

“The future of our kids and grandkids is in the hands of our national leaders,” Jones continues. “Steve Russell has served our country with honor on the battlefield and in the Oklahoma State Senate. Steve will make us proud serving Oklahomans in the United States Congress.”
