12 Senators Endorse Lankford

Twelve more state senators endorsed Congressman James Lankford today in his battle to win the Republican nomination for the Senate.

Four Tulsa-area senators previously announced their support.

Today’s endorsees and their statements:

“James Lankford is the conservative-minded individual that we need representing our Oklahoma values in Washington.  With our federal government spiraling out of control, James Lankford along with other like-minded members can help get government back to its core functions and provide future generations with the American dream they deserve.” –Senator Cliff Aldridge, District 42

“The best candidate for U.S. Senate is James Lankford. James stands out from many lawmakers because he deeply studies the issues, weighs what is in the best interest of our state and nation and follows through with solutions. Our nation needs a leader like James Lankford and our state should be proud to have him.” –Senator Patrick Anderson, District 19

“James Lankford is the candidate who will best carry on Tom Coburn’s legacy, while continuing to represent Oklahoma and do the work that so few legislators do to hold the government accountable. Oklahoma needs to elect a U.S. Senator who will continue to stand up for our personal freedoms on our own land. James Lankford is the man who is committed to this task and will show leadership and hard work to make it happen.” –Senator Larry Boggs, District 7

“James Lankford is the best candidate for U.S. Senate, bar none. Bringing effective change to our bloated federal government is not easy, but James’ conservative track record proves finding responsible solutions is possible. Courage and tenacity are what make a good leader, and those qualities are found in James Lankford. Oklahoma is in good hands with James Lankford and I am honored to support him for U.S. Senate. –Senator Corey Brooks, District 43

“I can think of no one better to fill Tom Coburn’s shoes than James Lankford. James stood strong against the agenda of the president and liberals in Washington, leading the charge to rein in spending. He has the experience and tenacity to make a real difference in the Senate and I am proud to support him.” –Senator Brian Crain, District 39

“Conservative leadership makes a difference in the United States Senate and a difference maker is James Lankford. He is the real deal, a strong conservative, principled with family values and that is why I am supporting James Lankford for the United States Senate. He is a man of integrity who we can trust to continue fighting for our Constitutional rights like he has done for the last four years. I am supporting him because I know he will continue to work for our personal freedoms and the Oklahoma way of life.  I would encourage anyone in my district or the state to get to know James personally and to vote for him on June 24.” –Senator Eddie Fields, District 10

“Our nation’s economy is unstable and the future for jobs is uncertain. We must elect James to the U.S. Senate because he works on common sense job-creating solutions, reducing burdensome regulations on business and families and get people back to work. I proud to stand with James Lankford for Senate.” –Senator John Ford, District 29

“James Lankford has proven time and again that he will protect Oklahoma values in Congress. Not only does he represent people in the metropolitan sector of his district, but he also understands and knows how to stand up for the concerns of rural Oklahoma. We need James’ integrity and hard work in the U.S. Senate to carry on the conservative principles of Senator Tom Coburn.” –Senator Ron Justice, District 23

“As a congressman, James Lankford has proven that he will stand up for Oklahoma farmers and ranchers, pushing back against unnecessary regulations that unduly burden Oklahoma families. James will fight for the rights and freedom that are so valuable to people of our district and our state so I gladly endorse him for the U.S. Senate.” –Senator Mike Schulz, District 38

“James Lankford is not a career politician. He is a minister, a father, a concerned citizen and a conservative leader who will do a tremendous job serving Oklahomans in the United States Senate. James genuinely lives by this faith, serves humbly not for his own recognition and embodies the conservative principles of local, limited government. I ask that you join me in supporting James Lankford for U.S. Senate.” –Senator Ron Sharp, District 17

“James Lankford has proven to be a statesman not a politician. He is a man of character and integrity who has been a strong leader and consistent voice for Oklahoma in Washington DC. During his time in Congress, James has continually championed Oklahoma’s conservative values and been a voice for rural Oklahoma. His strong work ethic and relentless pursuit of government accountability are exactly what this country needs.” —Senator Wayne Shaw, District 3

“In Congress, James Lankford has continued to fight for Oklahoma’s conservative values. He worked to reduce the deficit and stopped the creation of new duplicative federal programs, just to name a few accomplishments. If we join together as Oklahomans to send him to the U.S. Senate I am confident he will accomplish even greater things.” –Senator Anthony Sykes, District 24

    Unfor Itunately, my senator, Brian Crain has turned into a classic RINO. He endorsed Dem.Cathy Taylor in the recent Tulsa mayoral race against his party’s incumbent, Dewey Bartlett. Anything he is for, I’m against. I will actively support anyone running against Sen. Crain in the future.

    I believe you are mistaken, Senator Crain supported Mayor Bartlett. So much so he ran legislation after mayor Bartlett was stalked at his own home

    I see this as a list of 12 hopefuls wishing to kiss Lankford’s behind, hoping he helps them further their political careers when he becomes even more ensconced in the GOP Good Ol’ Boys club. Lankford first ran against the status quo, now he has become a part of the status quo.
