Gloves off in CD5: Neese tears into Bice for misrepresenting VP's support


After a fairly tame primary, the 5th District GOP runoff is heating up, in multiple ways. Terry Neese is going after Stephanie Bice for claiming an endorsement from Vice President Mike Pence... who rather unhelpfully sent a campaign donation and letter to both candidates.


STEPHANIE BICE LIES TO VOTERS (AGAIN), PUSHES FAKE ENDORSEMENT FROM VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE

Oklahoma City, OK -- On July 23rd, Terry Neese received a letter from Vice President Mike Pence, along with a $1,500.00 campaign contribution, which thanked Terry for her support and partnership with the Trump Administration for the past three and a half years. Both the letter and campaign contribution amount was identical to what Stephanie Bice received on June 30th -- but Bice used her letter to imply an endorsement was made by Vice President Pence in the 5th District congressional race.

For the past twelve days, Stephanie Bice and top campaign surrogates have knowingly pushed this false endorsement to voters as a means to distract them from her tax-raising, dangerous record as a career politician.


Matt Langston, campaign spokesman for the Neese campaign said: “Surprise, surprise -- Stephanie Bice has once again been caught red-handed lying to voters in a desperate attempt to divert attention away from her dangerous record of raising taxes and lack of support for the President’s bold America-First agenda. Stephanie has lied about being endorsed by Oklahomans For Life, she lied about her record on taxes, and she has now lied about being endorsed by the Vice President. Enough is enough -- spreading misinformation to voters is completely unacceptable and proves Stephanie will say and do anything to further her political career.”

On Monday, The Oklahoman reported more about Bice's false claims about the Vice President being on "Team Bice" - but it's time Stephanie owned up to her lies and came clean about her dangerous record as a career politician.
