8th House Freedom Caucus member endorses Coleman for Congress

1st Congressional District GOP candidate Andy Coleman has gained his eighth endorsement from members of the House Freedom Caucus. Taken with fellow primary candidate Kevin Hern's endorsement by a moderate GOP group, the 1st District primary appears to be setting up as a "principled conservative" versus "pragmatic conservative" battle based on the endorsements Coleman and Hern have received.


Congressman Randy Weber Endorses Coleman for U.S. Congress

TULSA, OK:  Today, Congressman Randy Weber (R-TX) officially endorsed Captain Andy Coleman, a Republican, in his bid to be the next U.S. congressman for Oklahoma’s First District.  Weber became the seventh member of Congress to endorse Coleman’s campaign.

“Andy Coleman can be trusted to lead the fight to defend our conservative values,” explained Weber.  “Anyone who’s looked at his background knows he isn’t afraid of tough fights.  We need more conservative champions like Andy who aren’t afraid to drain the swamp in Washington, and that’s why I’m pleased to endorse him.”

“I am so grateful Congressman Weber lent his support to my campaign,” expressed Coleman.  “He’s a serious conservative committed to draining the D.C. swamp.  That’s the tough fight that lies ahead for me.  Draining the swamp will be neither easy nor pleasant.  But most of my life involved overcoming challenges that were neither easy nor pleasant.  I’m up for the fight, and alongside other conservative champions like Randy Weber, I look forward to rolling back D.C.”

A successful businessman, Congressman Weber serves as a conservative U.S. representative from Texas.  He joins an extensive roster of conservative leaders who also endorsed Coleman’s campaign.  That roster includes former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, Dr. Everett Piper, as well as several prominent U.S. Congressmen, such as Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, Steve King, Ken Buck, Andy Harris, Jody Hice, and Tom Garrett.  Multiple conservative organizations also endorsed Coleman, including the Combat Veterans for Congress and the Madison Project.

Captain Andy Coleman graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy, served as a military intelligence officer in Iraq, and held leadership positions with conservative groups like the Federalist Society and Christian Legal Society.  In recent years, Coleman led field efforts to aid persecuted Christians in difficult countries for the Voice of the Martyrs, a Christian ministry based in Bartlesville.  Andy and his wife, Liz, have three children and reside in Owasso.
