OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma State Senator Al McAffrey announced his candidacy to represent the people of Oklahoma's 5th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives on Thursday.

McAffrey grew up in Sulphur, Oklahoma. After high school, McAffrey enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served as a Navy Corpsman. When he returned to Oklahoma, McAffrey joined the Oklahoma City Police Department and later went on to own and operate several small businesses. McAffrey currently owns and operates OK Cremation & Mortuary Services.

"Right now, Washington is stuck in gridlock. Folks on both sides of the aisle are so stuck they can't manage to get anywhere on anything," McAffrey said. "As a veteran, small business owner, dad, grandpa and legislator, I have the unique experience and proven track record of service to go to Washington to end the gridlock, reach across the aisle and start getting things done for Oklahomans."

McAffrey is currently serving in the Oklahoma State Senate, representing the people of Senate District 46. He previously served two and a half terms as State Representative for District 88.

The 5th District of U.S. House of Representative includes most of Oklahoma County, Pottawatomie County and Seminole County.
