Rep. George Faught Endorses Jarrin Jackson Against Mullin


Rep. George Faught Publicly Endorses Jarrin Jackson Against Mullin
Says “The people of the 2nd District deserve honesty and integrity”

Muskogee, OK – State Representative George Faught (R-Muskogee) has released a public endorsement of Jarrin Jackson, the Republican candidate opposing Congressman Markwayne Mullin in the June 28th primary election. Faught was the runner-up in the GOP runoff election for the 2nd Congressional District seat in 2012. He is the first state-level elected official to publicly endorse against the incumbent.

“In a time when our beloved country is teetering on the precipice, it is our duty to send a true patriot to Washington, D.C., who will fight to save our Republic. Former US Army Captain Jarrin Jackson is that man. His leadership, integrity and character has been forged in the trenches of the heat of battle and we know we can trust him to take on the establishment and return our nation to the Constitutional principles that America was founded upon,” said Faught.

“Jarrin Jackson will fight for the principles that we as conservatives hold dear. He will do whatever it takes to defund Planned Parenthood and defend the Right to Life. He will work to strengthen our military and protect our veterans. He will not cave to the pressure to grow government scope and spending or succumb to the lure of power and control.”

Noting blatant inconsistencies between Mullin’s campaign promises and his record as a congressman, Rep. Faught stated that the people of the 2nd District deserve honesty and integrity in their representative.

“Jarrin’s heart to serve was proven when he enlisted in the Army following the 9/11 terrorist attacks on our country. A West Point graduate and Army Ranger with two Bronze Stars, he will continue to keep his pledge to ‘defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.’ Those currently in office who ignore our Constitution are betraying this nation vote by vote. We need a battle-tested leader, a warrior who will never surrender or be intimidated – Oklahoma and America need Jarrin Jackson in Congress!”

Rep. George Faught (R-Muskogee) is currently serving his fourth term in the Oklahoma House of Representatives and chairs the Administrative Rules Committee. He was the first Republican ever elected to House District 14, which covers eastern Muskogee and western Cherokee counties.
