Gingrich Names Oklahoma Steering Committee

From Newt 2012

The Newt 2012 campaign added to its Oklahoma leadership today by announcing a strong political steering committee.

The leadership team includes:

  • Former Republican Majority Leader Tad Jones (Claremore)
  • State Representative Todd Thomsen (Ada)
  • State Representative Mike Jackson (Enid)
  • Former State Representative Robert Worthen  (Oklahoma City)
  • State Senator Rob Johnson (Yukon)
  • Former Cleveland County Republican Party Chairman Aaron Curry
  • Former Oklahoma County Republican Party Chairman Steve Curry
  • State Senator Bryce Marlatt (Woodward)
  • State Representative Leslie Osborne (Chickasha)
  • State Representative Don Armes (Faxon)
  • State Representative Dan Kirby (Broken Arrow)
  • State Senator Greg Childers (Del City)
  • Norman City Councilman Hal Ezell
  • State Senator Kim David (Wagoner)
  • State Representative Colby Schwarz (Yukon)

State Chairman J.C. Watts and State Director Chad Alexander have put together a strong grassroots effort in Oklahoma, recruiting some of Oklahoma’s most powerful leaders.

“We have organized an outspoken team of political leaders who can deliver a win for Speaker Gingrich on Super Tuesday,” said Alexander.

Newt echoed that sentiment praising the group “for their commitment to the cause of conservativism.  We need bold solutions and strong leadership to lower the price of gasoline to $2.50 per gallon, create jobs and defend America. I am honored that these leaders have joined in the fight.”

    Shouldn’t that be “Former” Republican Majority Leader Tad Jones?

    You guys are endorsing a progressive FDR loving disgraced philanderer Bill-Clinton-wanna-be, and you call yourselves conservatives?

    We presume Steve’s reference to “You guys” is to those listed in the story. And his point is well-taken,

    With the exception of JC Watts (which we have ll known about for a long time), that’s a pretty weak list. Chad A comes free with JC. Where are the legislative leaders? Where are the business folks?

    Sure glad to see Tad can pick he a good candidate, because he never could a winner in basketball

    Sure, we all should endorse that philander who has now found religion in the grandest of cults — the catholic church.– which worships Mary and the Pope more than the Holy Trinity. He is not a true Christian, does not follow the real Bible. as do most Oklahomans. Ron Paul is the only real Christian in the race.
