University of Kentucky
Georgetown College: BA
What is your reason for running?
“I truly believe this election is unlike any other election that any of us have ever experienced. Right now, all across Oklahoma, our families and businesses are besieged by a Congress, an Administration and its federal agencies that are hostile to our most cherished values and ideals. Furthermore, I believe that what is at stake in this election is whether we are going to live consistent with what our Constitution stands for – whether we will live with the freedoms for which we were intended. I am seeking to serve as Attorney General of the State of Oklahoma to advance your freedom, punish those who commit crimes against children and the elderly, and root out public corruption. ”
Why should Oklahomans vote for you?
“I will be a new type of Attorney General. I will shift existing resources to create an “Office of Federalism” whose task it will be to keep the federal government from unduly burdening Oklahomans and Oklahoma businesses. I will have a no-nonsense approach to crime, and will be an advocate for victims’ rights, while aggressively prosecuting and punishing crimes against children and the elderly.”
