Trump Secretary of State Pompeo endorses Sen. James Lankford for reelection

We are just under a year out from the 2022 primary election here in Oklahoma, and the race for U.S. Senate is starting to take shape. Incumbent Republican James Lankford is running for a second full in the upper chamber, after winning a special election in 2014 to fulfill the last two years of Dr. Tom Coburn's second term. Tulsa pastor Jackson Lahmeyer is challenging Lankford from the right, with the support of QAnon-friendly crackpot and former Trump administration member Gen. Michael Flynn.

Former Secretary of State Latest to Endorse Lankford

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (July 5th) – James Lankford’s campaign for U.S. Senate announced today that former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is the latest to endorse his re-election bid. Secretary Pompeo also served in President Trump’s administration as the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. He previously served as a member of Congress from Kansas.

Here’s what Mike had to say about supporting James:

“James is a friend and a true patriot—a defender of religious freedom and the life of every child. He is also a tenacious fighter against DC’s bad spending habits. I’ve worked with James for years and I have seen his tireless efforts to ensure our American values were shared at home and abroad. James is committed to his faith and to our conservative values. We need more people like James who are willing to do the hard work it takes to save our country.”

“I am thankful for Mike’s friendship over the years and honored to have his endorsement as we continue to fight for the values of our state and nation,” said Lankford.

Lankford has previously released a number of other endorsements, including from U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, Gov. Kevin Stitt, Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell, and most of Oklahoma's congressional, statewide, and legislative members.
