OKLAHOMA REPUBLICAN PARTY UNVEILS STATUE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP AT RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN KICKOFF CELEBRATION

(OKLAHOMA CITY, OK) - On Tuesday, June 18, at 1:00 pm the Oklahoma Republican Party hosted a reception at the Oklahoma GOP Headquarters in Oklahoma City in the hours leading up to the nationwide announcement by President Donald J. Trump that he is running for re-election.

The event featured the grand unveiling of a sculpture of President Trump called “The President who Loved America” by acclaimed Oklahoma sculptor Brenda Angel, Ph.D. The public was invited to the event, which was also headlined by Oklahoma State Auditor & Inspector Cindy Byrd and several State Senators and State Representatives, including State Senator Nathan Dahm and Major Jay Steagall, (Ret.), and more.

"I am excited about the announcement from President Trump that he will seek re-election," said David McLain, chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party. "The promises he made were the promises he kept. His strong leadership with proven global security and economic success has led to peace and prosperity. Oklahomans are eager to support their President!"

Senior United States Senator Jim Inhofe welcomed the announcement of the upcoming President Trump kickoff and the active efforts underway by the Oklahoma Republican Party to elect Republicans in the upcoming cycle, "President Trump has been a staunch ally of mine in rebuilding our military after years of neglect. I share his priorities of securing our country, rolling back burdensome regulation, and protecting our men and women in uniform. I look forward to working with the Oklahoma Republican Party to ensure that we re-elect President Trump and keep Oklahoma red in 2020."

The event featured speeches from Republican party leaders and elected officials and focused on rallying supporters across the state of Oklahoma to do their part in 2020 to ensure the re-election of President Trump.

“It’s an honor to be with everyone at the unveiling of the Trump sculpture done by Angel, a fellow southeastern Oklahoman,” said State Auditor and Inspector Cindy Byrd, the first female State Auditor, who was elected to statewide office by the highest margin in Oklahoma history. “It is an honor to support President Trump – he delivers on his promises.  President Trump loves this country and its people, and it is evident by his accountability and transparency – he led the biggest tax and regulations cuts on businesses since the late ’80s.  Trump delivers on expectations, and I look forward to what he will accomplish in the next four years.”

The same day, the Oklahoma Republican Party also began a push for fundraising for its "Victory 2020" campaign to train activists and to elect Republicans from the top of the ballot to local offices in all of Oklahoma’s 77 counties.
