Kaye Beach at AxXiom for Liberty is reporting that Barry Switzer is appearing at a fundraiser tomorrow night for State Rep. Shane Jett's congressional campaign.
Switzer has drawn fire for his involvement in the highway traffic "spy" cam controversy (click here for Mike McCarville's excellent coverage).
Jett had not previously announced Switzer's endorsement, to the best of my knowledge. Jett is running in the most crowded federal-level primary in Oklahoma this year - 7 Republicans are running for the 5th Congressional District seat that Mary Fallin is vacating. The other major candidates are Kevin Calvey, James Lankford, and Mike Thompson.
Switzer is widely credited with helping current Democrat Gov. Brad Henry win in 2002 in what was considered to be a race that Republican Congressman Steve Largent should have won.
