He is focused on solving our nation’s problems and improving the lives of all Oklahomans.

While remaining passionate about the sanctity of life and traditional family values, Senator Lankford has become a strong voice for fiscal discipline and accountability in the federal government. He has emerged as a leader in fighting government regulations that are suffocating businesses and weakening the economy. Senator Lankford has continued to fight for Oklahoma's workers and small businesses throughout the pandemic. In 2020 he was awarded the “Guardian of the Small Business” award for his efforts to ensure that Oklahoma’s small businesses have the resources that they need to survive this pandemic.

His peers elected Lankford to serve as the Chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee for the 113th Congress working behind the scenes to push the Republican Conference toward conservative solutions for the issues facing our nation. Before Congress James served the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma as Director of Falls Creek Youth Camp from 1996 to 2009.
