LT. COL. STEVE RUSSELL WINS CONGRESSIONAL SEAT
November 4, 2014
Lt. Col. Steve Russell has won Oklahoma’s 5th District Congressional seat in a landslide victory today. He beat his Democratic challenger, Al McAffrey, with more than 60% of the vote.
“I am honored and humbled that you have given me your powerful voice to represent yours in Congress,” says Congressman-elect Russell. “Oklahomans have spoken and they want principled, constitutional conservative leadership in Washington and I thank them for entrusting me with such an important duty.”
The general election win is the culmination of 10 months of hard word and dedication through a 6-candidate primary and a primary runoff. But Congressman-elect Russell says the election marks a beginning, not an end.
“We fought a hard campaign based on honesty, integrity, and principle. I will now carry that fighting spirit, on behalf of the 5th District, to the halls of Congress. The election is over but the real work is just beginning. I want the voters to know I will work tirelessly every day to represent their best interests in Washington.”
