Jett Endorsed James Lankford

5th District congressional candidate James Lankford picked up another endorsement today, from former opponent Shane Jett.
I have been honored to serve the families of Oklahoma House District 27 for six years. When I filed for Congress earlier this year, it was clear to me that many of the problems facing the nation today originated in our nation’s Capitol. Many issues that we face today as a state can only be resolved with effective leadership in Washington D.C. Throughout the race, Ana and I were honored with the support of so many great volunteers and to receive thousands of votes. We thank you for your trust and support!

On August 24th, voters have the opportunity to choose the republican nominee who will likely become our next U.S. Congressman. That day, Ana and I will be voting for James Lankford. Throughout the campaign and today, James has had only one interest in mind: to serve the residents of the 5th Congressional District.

James has been truthful about his work experience, transparent about his motivations and never misled anyone about his professional background. With James, what you see is what you get. His sincerity, honesty and candor gives me confidence to say unequivocally and emphatically that James Lankford is the best choice for this Republican run off on August 24th. For me and my family, it comes down to one fundamental ingredient: character and more to the point integrity. My wife, Ana, and I hope you join us in supporting James Lankford with your vote, your finances and your volunteer time. So don’t forget… Vote for James Lankford!


Lankford has also been endorsed by Mike Thompson and Rick Flanigan - both were unsuccessful candidates in the July 27th GOP primary. Lankford and Kevin Calvey are in a runoff, which will take place on August 24th.

WOW! What an eloquent and powerful endorsement. It's refreshing to see this coming from a former GOP opponent. Most races pitted great folks against each other, and only one can come out the nominee. Why do some primaries turn so negative? Almost to the degree that volunteers refuse to vote for the other candidate in the general election! Now THAT is going to help the Dems win! Sour grapes stink!
