(July 30, 2018) U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) announces his official endorsement for Cathy Costello in the race for Oklahoma Labor Commissioner.  Sen. Cruz won Oklahoma's GOP Presidential Primary in 2016 with more than 158,000 Republican votes.

    "Our republic requires an active participation by all of us and it's encouraging when solid conservatives step up to run for office," Ted Cruz says.  "I'm asking Oklahoma voters to carefully consider the choices before them in this election cycle and to stand with those who have proven themselves to be conservatives of conviction.  In the race for Labor Commissioner, I am proud to endorse Cathy Costello, and I urge the voters of Oklahoma to join me by supporting her."

    Sen. Cruz won Oklahoma’s Republican Presidential primary with a strong conservative message and statewide community contact.  Cathy Costello is campaigning across Oklahoma the same way.

    "I am deeply honored to receive this endorsement from the leading conservative lawmaker in American politics," says Cathy Costello.  "Senator Cruz and I met often during his Presidential campaign and I know he is a man of integrity and principle.  He fought tirelessly to improve mental health legislation in Congress.  I want the voters of Oklahoma to know that Senator Ted Cruz and I are both cut from the same cloth.  We both came from humble beginnings and worked our way to success, we value the integrity of workers in the free market, and we both are determined to fight for limited government."

    Cathy Costello is a co-founder of several businesses, both domestic and international, and is a sought-after national speaker and advocate on issues of mental health.  She has been instrumental in passing major state and federal legislation to improve how employers address mental health needs in the workplace.

    The Republican primary runoff for Labor Commissioner is scheduled for August 28 and the general election will be held November 6, 2018.
