Sen. Mike Lee endorses Alex Gray in Senate special election

Senate candidate Alex Gray continues with a steady stream of news in the past few days. He announced $100k in fundraising during his first campaign's 24 hours, plus endorsements by two figures in the Trump administration (Ric Grenell and Kash Patel). Gray drops a hint that he has additional endorsements coming soon.

This news was first broken by Erick Erickson, nationally syndicated radio host and commentator.

Lee becomes the third sitting U.S. Senator to endorse a candidate in this race so far. Sen. Jim Inhofe started things off by endorsing of his chief of staff, Luke Holland, when he made his retirement announcement. Sen. Rand Paul has endorsed State Sen. Nathan Dahm. U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin has not issued any endorsements, but he figures to be the frontrunner due to his name recognition and deep personal pockets. 

Additional individuals are still rumored to be considering running, including Rep. Kevin Hern, former Rep. J.C. Watts, former Ambassador Kyle McCarter, former State House Speaker T.W. Shannon, and former State Rep. Paul Wesselhoft.


Oklahoma City, OK – Just a day after announcing his candidacy for United States Senate, former Trump Administration national security official, Alex Gray, has received the third endorsement of his campaign from Senator Mike Lee of Utah in his campaign for U.S. Senate.

Senator Lee is one of the most ardent supporters of President Trump in the United States Senate and understands the importance of electing America First senators across the country to stop the out-of-control Biden Administration's harmful policies.  

“Alex Gray is an America First conservative. We need more proven, constitutional conservatives in the Senate. As one of the key national-security officials for President Trump, Alex helped make America great again. He has my complete and total endorsement in his U.S. Senate campaign!” said Senator Mike Lee in a statement endorsing Alex Gray.

“I want to thank Senator Lee for endorsing my candidacy so early in my campaign. It was a pleasure to work with Senator Lee on National Security issues during my time in the Trump Administration. I look forward to working with Senator Lee once again when I am elected to the United States Senate. We share the same goals and vision for our country, and it is an honor to receive an endorsement from such a strong conservative fighter in the Senate,” Gray said.

The endorsement from Senator Lee is the third significant endorsement of Gray’s candidacy, who just announced his candidacy yesterday. Lee joins former Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell and former Chief of Staff to the Secretary of Defense Kash Patel in endorsing Alex Gray. Gray has established himself as the front runner in the race to replace the retiring Jim Inhofe, with more endorsements sure to come in the next few days.
