OCPAC Endorses Jarrin Jackson for Congress

OCPAC Endorses Jarrin Jackson for U.S. Congress, OK-District 2
Spokesman says current Congressman Mullin has not kept his word

May 4, 2016 (Oklahoma City, OK) -- The Oklahoma Conservative Political Action Committee (OCPAC) announced its endorsement of Republican Jarrin Jackson for Congress, who is challenging incumbent Congressman Markwayne Mullin for Oklahoma’s second district. The group voted overwhelmingly in support of the decorated combat veteran, with several citing disappointment in Mullin’s vote record of growing government and increasing the national debt to unprecedented levels.

“Jarrin is a Jim Bridenstine grassroots conservative who will defend the Constitution. He won’t disappoint conservatives in District Two who are still wondering why Mullin voted for the Omnibus – a $19 trillion dollar debt disgrace,” former President of OCPAC, Charlie Meadows, said after the group interviewed Jackson.

He said, “Jarrin is a combat veteran. He knows what it means to serve others and defend our Constitution. America is starved for leadership, and his record of service shows that he is willing to sacrifice his comfort for our nation’s success. He has already proven that he will keep his word and do what he says. District Two will be well-served to elect Jarrin Jackson as a true representative of our state’s conservative, constitutional values.”

Jackson used Mullin’s record to justify his candidacy. “Markwayne Mullin consistently votes to grow government. From the Omnibus to education to Amtrak to the Ex-Im Bank, Mullin has a record of spending other people’s money to make government bigger,” said Jackson.

Jarrin Jackson, a graduate of West Point and former Army Ranger, earned 2 bronze stars in service during two combat tours in Afghanistan. A 5th generation Oklahoman from Oologah, he and his physician wife Katie raise their two boys, Lloyd and Dale, in Claremore, Oklahoma.
