State Auditor Gary Jones endorses Faught



State Auditor Gary Jones Endorses Faught for Congress 

Muskogee, OK – State Rep. George Faught announced another endorsement today in his race for Congress in Oklahoma’s 2nd Congressional District. Current State Auditor & Inspector Gary Jones has been added to the list of state and national individuals who have openly come out in support of Faught’s campaign.

Jones, a former longtime Oklahoma Republican Party Chairman, hopes his endorsement of George Faught, along with endorsements from Gov. Mike Huckabee, Phyllis Schlafly and others, will help propel Faught to victory in the June 26th primary.

“As a proud Oklahoma Republican, I am honored to endorse George Faught for Congress. George is the trusted and proven conservative in the 2nd District race. He has personally invested in growing the Republican Party throughout District 2, working at the grassroots level. When George goes to Washington he'll continue to fight for our country the way he's fought for Oklahoma at the State Capitol,” said Jones. “George has the backbone to stand and proudly represent Oklahoma values in Congress. He is truly a principled conservative. I urge Oklahomans from all across our state to support George. Let's send a good man to be Oklahoma's newest Republican Congressman to Washington this November!”

With his endorsement, Jones becomes the first statewide elected official to make a pick in the crowded 2nd Congressional District GOP primary.

Faught responded to the news by saying, “I am honored to have State Auditor Jones join my growing team of supporters. Gary understands how critical this election will be, and that we need to send a true conservative to Washington. I have a proven and public record of conservatism, and am the only candidate in this race who has shown he can win in a 70% Democrat district. With the critical issues facing our nation, our next Congressman must be ready from day one to tackle the challenges, and I can do that.”

“I will fight to repeal ObamaCare, defend pro-life values, and cut spending and balance the budget. We need to break the chains of government regulations so America can create energy sector jobs again,” said Faught.
