Todd Lamb Officially Files for Governor
Retired General Tommy Franks Offers Endorsement 

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, April 11, 2018 – Republican gubernatorial candidate Todd Lamb officially filed to be Oklahoma’s 28th governor this morning, saying the occurrence is an ‘honor and an extremely serious undertaking’. Prior to filing, Lamb attended a campaign filing celebration where Oklahoma native and retired United States General Tommy Franks officially offered his endorsement.

“It is a tremendous honor to officially file as a candidate for governor, and it is an extremely serious undertaking,” Lamb said. “I am excited to continue to take my RENEW Oklahoma campaign to the citizens of this great state across all 77 counties. With the primary quickly approaching I continue to be humbled by the incredible outpouring of support from Oklahomans representing all walks of life. To that end, I am very honored by General Franks’ support and deeply appreciate his attendance at my filing celebration event this morning. He is a true Oklahoma treasure and a man I deeply respect.”

General Franks commented, “Military personnel do not often engage in partisan elections, however Todd Lamb is a different type of leader and someone I have complete confidence will lead Oklahoma with a purpose and a plan. I know a thing or two about leadership and the necessity of detailed planning. As we collectively embark on our mission to make Oklahoma more prosperous and a national leader across many important spectrums, it is vital we elect a governor who is a proven conservative, and who has a detailed vision of what Oklahoma should look like in the future. Todd Lamb is that leader - with a detailed plan - and I am excited to support his candidacy.”



Cornett Files for Governor

OKLAHOMA CITY – Mick Cornett, the former Mayor of Oklahoma City, on Wednesday officially added his name to the ballot for the Republican nomination for Governor.

“Today is not just about filing the paperwork to run for Governor,” Cornett said. “Today is a reminder of the challenges waiting for us at the State Capitol, and I am looking forward to bringing people together and tackling our issues as One Oklahoma. With new leadership, we can fix the mess state government has created, prioritize education for the next generation and truly diversify our economy.”

Cornett’s filing for Governor comes the day after his final term as mayor ended. His tenure shaped Oklahoma City into one of the best run cities in the country and his legacy as mayor includes 14-straight, on-time balanced budgets, 100,000 new jobs and nearly 10,000 new businesses created, one of the most diversified economies in the country, and bringing the NBA to town.

“Oklahoma City has come as far, as fast as any city in the country,” Cornett continued. “It’s time we take the success we’ve seen at the local level to every corner of our state.
