In a message to Governor Johnson, Daxon says, “Thank you for making the personal sacrifices inherent in running for President. I will be voting for you.
“I am a life-long Republican. Fifty years ago, I was President of the Oklahoma County Teen-Age Republicans and later Chairman of Oklahoma College Republicans and part of our delegation to the 1976 National Convention. I have held statewide elective office as a Republican and served as Republican State Chairman. Only a few times have I failed to vote for the Republican candidate. But, I am an American first!
“This is a very important election. Donald Trump announced his candidacy with a promise to restrict immigration from Mexico and he all but declared a trade war with the rest of the world. With our serious national debt, we need growth. We aren't going to get it with a bunch of new regulations and high tariffs. And - with government playing its proper role, America CAN compete with anyone in the world.”
Daxon served as Oklahoma State Auditor from 1979 to 1983, and as the state’s Secretary of Finance and Revenue from 1995 to 2003. He served as Chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party from 2006 to 2008.
