OKGOP clarifies: no primary endorsements from the State Party

It seems that some candidate(s) is insinuating an endorsement by the Oklahoma Republican Party, prompting the following statement by leadership of the OKGOP:
OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON PRIMARY RACES

Be it known, to all registered Republicans, that the Oklahoma Republican Party does not endorse any candidate running in a Republican primary.

Any candidate running in a primary and implies or states they have the endorsement of the Oklahoma Republican Party is not being truthful and is intentionally misleading voters.


Our core belief is that Republican voters should make their own choice among primary candidates without undue influence from the State Party itself. Any candidate running on such a claim should cease and desist from such comment, as it is blatantly false.

David McLain, State Chairman
Mike Turner, State Vice Chair
Carolyn McLarty, National Committeewoman
Steve Curry, National Committeeman
A.J. Ferate, Legal Counsel
