Oklahoma AgSec Jim Reese endorses Rubio


Jim Reese Endorses Marco Rubio as “good guardian” for Oklahoma Agriculture

The Marco Rubio for President Oklahoma State Chairman, Senator David Holt, has announced that Jim Reese, longtime champion for Oklahoma agriculture, is endorsing Marco Rubio.

"Marco Rubio will restore sanity and restraint to the federal regulations that are coming down like rain from this current administration, and I am proud to support him,” said Reese.  "Oklahoma agriculture has produced more and safer food every year of this decade despite many challenging conditions and headwinds from Washington. With a good guardian like Marco Rubio as President, our efforts will be bolstered."

“Jim Reese is unquestionably one of Oklahoma agriculture’s greatest champions,” said Senator Holt.   “His endorsement, joining Congressman Markwayne Mullin, Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Eddie Fields, and almost a dozen rural legislators, speaks volumes.  Marco Rubio is the best Republican presidential candidate for Oklahoma agriculture."

Marco Rubio is a candidate in the March 1st Oklahoma Republican presidential primary.  He most recently visited the state in September, when he paid his respects at the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum and delivered a speech outlining his energy plan.  Oklahoma supporters of Marco Rubio’s campaign can receive updates by following @TeamMarcoOK on Twitter or liking TeamMarcoOK on Facebook.


(Ed. note: Reese serves as Commissioner of Agriculture, and in 
Gov. Fallin's cabinet as Secretary of Agriculture.)
