Today, President Donald Trump endorsed Jim Inhofe’s reelection bid in the following tweet:
Inhofe was also endorsed by Oklahoma leadership, including Kevin Stitt, Senator James Lankford and the entire Oklahoma delegation.
Gov. Kevin Stitt said, “Now more than ever we need the true conservative leadership of Jim Inhofe in Washington. Whether it’s funding our roads and bridges or fighting the overregulation of the energy industry, he’s always done what Oklahoma has needed. Now as Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, he is leading the charge to rebuild our military and protect Oklahoma’s installations. I’m proud to endorse and support my good friend, Jim Inhofe.”
Sen. James Lankford said, “Jim Inhofe is a man of strong faith, who loves his family, and defends our nation. He’s led the charge in the Senate to rebuild our military, make strong investments in Oklahoma’s infrastructure and aviation, and is a passionate defender of life. I’m proud to work beside him in the Senate. His strong, conservative voice is needed now more than ever.”
Rep. Tom Cole said, “Whether it’s leading the effort to rebuild our military as the chairman of the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee, or helping secure key infrastructure dollars for local communities, Senator Jim Inhofe’s leadership paves the way for a bright future for all Oklahomans. I couldn’t be more proud to support such an effective advocate delivering results across all of Oklahoma’s seventy seven counties. It is my pleasure to endorse Jim, and hope you join me in voting for him for re-election in November.”
Rep. Frank Lucas said, “The State of Oklahoma has known no finer statesman of the Senate and no greater fighter of conservative values than Senator Jim Inhofe. Throughout his service to our great state, Jim has fought tirelessly, upholding Oklahoma’s values- formerly as Mayor of Tulsa and now as Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. The Senate is a better institution with Jim Inhofe in its ranks and our state is better served thanks to his hard work and leadership. I’m proud to call Senator Jim Inhofe a friend and a colleague, which is why I’m honored to endorse our state’s highest flying senator, Jim Inhofe.”
Rep. Markwayne Mullin said, “Senator Jim Inhofe is like family to me and I cannot think of anyone better to represent our great state in the United States Senate. He has fought for Oklahoma’s conservative values his entire career and I look forward to him continuing that fight for the next 6 years. I am proud to support Senator Inhofe’s re-election.”
Rep. Kevin Hern said, “No one has served the state of Oklahoma with more honor, integrity, and endurance than Jim Inhofe. He is a respected and revered leader in our nation’s capital, a master legislator in the Senate. His unrelenting work ethic is well known across the state and country – President Trump himself relies on Jim’s leadership and prowess on the military and immigration. I count myself specifically blessed to serve the people of Oklahoma alongside him and give him my full endorsement for this fall.”
