Rep. Steve Russell endorses Lamb for Governor
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – September 18, 2017 – Republican gubernatorial candidate Todd Lamb announced today he has received the endorsement of Fifth District U.S. Representative Steve Russell (R - Oklahoma City). The Fifth Congressional District encompasses Oklahoma, Pottawatomie and Seminole counties, including the cities of Oklahoma City, Edmond and Shawnee.
"I have seen firsthand the proven leadership and talent of Todd Lamb when we served together in the state Senate,” Congressman Russell said. “His organizational skill, vision and great way with people made him an incredible floor leader in a very divided Senate. Todd is selfless, has a great moral compass and was willing to lay down his life for others as a United States Secret Service agent. He has my vote, complete trust and confidence as Oklahoma's next governor."
Lamb said, “I am honored to earn the endorsement of Congressman Russell and appreciate the manner in which he represents the Fifth District in Washington, D.C. He has never shied away from his conservative principles; the same principles that guide me on a daily basis, and that will define my gubernatorial administration. Steve Russell has earned the respect of his constituents and conservative colleagues in the U.S. House, and I am excited to count him as a member of my campaign team.”
