Official press release from OKGOP Chairman Gary Jones:

(EDIT: That didn't work... try this instead)

This will make for an interesting state chair race. This blog is fully behind Gary Jones; the OKGOP has flourished under his lead like it has for no other.

Yeah, I'm all behind Gary and Angie as well. I agree with libertarians on most issues but not all. They don't seem to realize that Republicans and Libertarians are two totally different parties....they couldn't form their own(lack of support) so now they are trying to take over ours. They are the ones dividing the Republican party...not us.

Anonymous has fallen into the trap of promoting party above principle. Compromise pimps like Jones, LaPlante, Bush, McCain, Coburn, Fallin, Cornett, etc., who think is OK to be socialist and/or fascist, so long as you're perceived as less of both than the opposing party, are what caused us the last two elections. The so-called Ron Paul people are really just TRUE Republicans trying to get our party back to it's original intent and idealogy. They've been given a bad rap

I do not promote party above principle...just because a conservative official does or votes for one thing that you may not agree with does not make them "non-conservative" and a betrayer of the party. If "Dr. NO" as we call him voted "yes" on the first bailout bill, then you know that it was a difficult decision to make...but it does not make hima betrayer of the party, or a turning away of being conservative. Cole, Cornett, and McCain don't qualify for my idea of conservative. I believe the last two elections have been very good for us here in Oklahoma...I don't know what you mean about losing the last two elections. The so called Ron Paul people are really just TRUE Libertarians....in the disguise of Republicans.

Quoting Anonymous "...just because a conservative official does or votes for one thing that you may not agree with does not make them "non-conservative" and a betrayer of the party.

So he's a conservative because he says he is, or because you say he is? Sorry, but we can only judge our elected officials by their actions and their votes, and for Toeburn to get up there and filibuster for nigh on ten minutes about how unconstitutional abuse of political power got us into this mess, and how unconstitutional the bailout is, then say, "Oh but I'm voting for it, make no mistake...", shows that he is NOT a conservative and that he IS a hypocrite.
