Former State Rep. Paul Wesselhöft exploring U.S. Senate campaign

Former State Rep. Paul Wesselhöft announced this afternoon that he is exploring running for the U.S. Senate following news of Jim Inhofe's pending retirement. 

Wesselhöft spent 12 years in the Oklahoma House of Representatives, representing House District 54 in Moore and southeast Oklahoma City. A U.S. Army veteran of nearly two decades, he has also served in the Citizen Potawatomi Nation Legislature since 2007.

Here is the exploratory announcement he sent me to publish:


I’m seriously thinking of running for the U.S. Senate. 

Reports say Senator Inhofe will retire.

Oklahoma needs a strong leader on the Armed Forces Committee.

I’m a retired Army Chaplain. I served during the Vietnam era and in combat in Desert Shield & Desert Storm as well as serving as an officer in the First U.S. Ranger Battalion. 

I served 12 years in the Oklahoma House of Representatives. 

Since 2008 I have served as elected Representative of Oklahoma in the national legislature of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. I’m an ordained Southern Baptist minister, Please Google me to read my biography. 

I’m a strong supporter of Trump’s policies, but believe there are better candidates for the next President like Governors Ron DeSantis, Greg Abbott, Kristi Noem and Nikki Haley and Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio among others. We have numerous strong potential presidential candidates.  

If you support me and will vote for me, please email me at:

Please make comments. 

I covet your support and prayers.

Paul Wesselhöft

  1. During my 12 years at the House, I was among the top 3 most conservatives in both chambers. I'm proud of my public record.
