This press release is from Darrel Robertson, 2nd District Congressman Markwayne Mullin’s GOP challenger:
Darrel Robertson, a conservative businessman and candidate for Congress, announced the endorsement of Dr. Alveda King, a conservative pro-life activist and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on Monday. The announcement comes amid mounting criticism of Markwayne Mullin’s vote in favor of a museum labeled by conservative groups as being pro-abortion.
“As a long-time advocate for the unborn, I am proud to support Darrel Robertson for Congress,” said King. “He is a man of faith, conviction, and passion for conservative principles, and I know that he will be a strong voice for the voiceless. With so many politicians abandoning principles in Washington, it is essential that we elect true conservatives who we can count on to stand for what is right. Darrel Robertson is that man, and we are truly blessed that he has put himself forward as a candidate to fight for our values.”
“In times like these, we cannot allow special interests and Washington insiders to tell us who to send to Congress,” added King pointing to Markwayne Mullin’s history of receiving most of his support from groups within Washington. “Politicians like Markwayne Mullin have proven that protecting their political position is more important to them than standing on principle.”
King, a former Georgia legislator, has been a strong advocate for Republican principles, a fierce protector of her uncle’s legacy from the liberal agenda, a committed voice for marriage, and an active proponent of the Right to Life.
“I am honored that Dr. King has decided to support my campaign,” added Robertson- a noted professional angler and innovative businessman who has seen increased interest in his campaign since the stunning upset of Majority Leader Eric Cantor by Dave Brat, who also used Concentric Direct, Robertson’s grass root oriented campaign consulting firm. “People are dissatisfied with Washington politicians that refuse to stand up for our Constitution and our values. I will fight every day against the Obama administration and against Establishment figures like Markwayne Mullin who care more about Washington special interest money than protecting Oklahoma values.”
A lifelong resident of Grove, OK, Darrel Robertson is surging with just over one week until the June 24 election. Regarded as more conservative than his opponent, Robertson is a staunch supporter of term limits, and he has been critical of Mullin’s unreliability on being pro-life, his support of big spending, his numerous ethics issues, and his refusal to stand by his promise to limit himself to three terms.
