After much prayerful consideration with friends and family, I've decided to launch a campaign for Attorney General. While a formal announcement is still forthcoming, I'm now in the process of filing the necessary paperwork and getting my campaign team in place.Pruitt enters into a competitive Republican primary, with candidates Ryan Leonard and State Sen. Clark Jolley already running. However, I feel that Pruitt comes into the race ahead of Jolley, perhaps on Leonard's heels.
I'd like to thank my good friend, Charlie Polston, for his guidance and encouragement in regards to this decision. He began a Draft Pruitt blog many months ago (www.pruitt4okag.blogspot.com) and I'd ask that you please sign up for updates there until my website is up and running.
I look forward in the coming days and weeks to sharing with you my vision for the office of Attorney General. In the mean time, I leave you with this quote:
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." -- Ronald Reagan
Thank you and God Bless,
