Fields endorses Pinnell in Lt. Gov. runoff

GOP Lieutenant Governor candidate and former OKGOP chair Matt Pinnell just landed a big endorsement for the runoff -- third-place candidate State Sen. Eddie Fields is throwing his support to Pinnell rather than Corporation Commissioner Dana Murphy.

Fields said the following in his endorsement of Pinnell:
“It is my pleasure to endorse Matt Pinnell as Oklahoma’s next Lieutenant Governor. As a third-generation Osage County cattle rancher I know the challenges many Oklahomans are facing first hand. We need someone who will continue to stand up for Oklahomans in all seventy-seven counties, and be an effective ambassador for our state across this country. As a lifetime member of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association and other agriculture groups, I trust Matt to effectively champion those causes. Matt brings leadership skills and a conservative vision for this state, and I hope you will join me in securing a bright future for Oklahoma by voting for Matt Pinnell on August 28.”
The LtGov primary ended with Murphy at 45.84%, Pinnell at 35.69%, and Fields at 13.74%. Fields did decently well in some important eastern and northern counties, prime territory for Pinnell to make up the gap in the runoff.

Welcome aboard the Pinnell train, Sen. Fields!
