Jarrin Jackson for Congress

When it comes to electing our public officials, integrity is vitally important. When an elected official says they will do something, we need to be able to trust that they will keep their word. In the 2nd Congressional District race, we now face a crisis of integrity.

When Congressman Mullin first ran in 2012, he repeatedly pledged to the voters that he would only serve three terms. Now, he brazenly breaks his word and is seeking a fourth term in Congress. Mullin has apparently decided that the allure of power is too much to give up.

A remorseless pledge-breaker, Markwayne Mullin is the consummate politician, deceptively saying one thing, then doing the opposite when voters turn around. Voters should reward that dishonesty and lack of integrity by booting him from office in the June 26th primary. They should replace him with a person of virtue and character who has demonstrated true honor and integrity.

Mullin has drawn three challengers: Brian Jackson, Jarrin Jackson, and John McCarthy. McCarthy is not a serious candidate, running previously as an Independent on the platform of curing cancer.

I grew up attending the same church as Brian Jackson. He is a great man with a great family, and would make an infinite improvement over Markwayne Mullin; however, he was not able to wage a viable campaign against Mullin. That leaves Jarrin Jackson - who is no relation to Brian.

Dr. Tom Coburn has strongly endorsed Jarrin Jackson for Congress. Jackson is a former Army captain, a West Point graduate and Army Ranger with two Bronze Stars earned on tours in Afghanistan. He's a conservative who will make us proud.

From securing our borders to ending funding for Planned Parenthood, killing ObamaCare and attacking the national debt and overspending, Jarrin Jackson will pose a stark contrast to Markwayne Mullin's go-with-the-establishment pattern.

Jarrin Jackson knows a thing or two about giving and keeping his word. He gave an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic" -- and he's kept his pledge.

Honesty and integrity are important. On Tuesday, Republican voters have the opportunity to choose from two candidates: one who keeps his word, and one who won't. I hope that you will join me in voting for the integrity candidate, combat veteran Jarrin Jackson.
