Matt Pinnell announces for Lieutenant Governor

Former OKGOP Chairman Matt Pinnell sent the following email out this afternoon, announcing his candidacy for Lieutenant Governor:

When I graduated from Oral Roberts University I was challenged and reminded to “make no little plans.” Those words have driven me ever since.

For the last several months my family, friends, and fellow Oklahomans have encouraged me to continue a lifelong fight — making Oklahoma a place where our children and grandchildren can prosper and succeed for generations to come.

That's why I'm excited to tell you I'm running to be Oklahoma’s next Lieutenant Governor in 2018!

My skills and experiences have uniquely prepared me to serve Oklahoma at this critical moment in our state’s history.

As I’ve traveled the country helping to elect Donald Trump and win Republican majorities in the U.S. House and Senate, Oklahoma has always remained home. I have met so many Oklahomans who share my vision for an innovative, prosperous, and forward-looking state. This is why I've kept my family in Oklahoma, why Lisa and I started our small business here, and what has led me to run for Lieutenant Governor today.

I’ve worked tirelessly in the trenches of the grassroots throughout my career. When I became state Republican Party chairman, we focused on charting a new course for the state party and helped deliver incredible victories. I then took that same passion to the national level, where I oversaw all 50 state parties. It was hard work, but it helped develop me into the leader I am today.

I don’t make small plans, and Oklahoma shouldn’t either.

I’m asking you to join my team today, and to be a part of our fight to build a proud, prosperous, Oklahoma. If you're with me, please like my campaign page on Facebook and click here to visit my website.

Thank you,
Matt Pinnell
