State Rep. Jim Olsen endorses Bennett for Congress

State Rep. Jim Olsen (R-Sallisaw) has endorsed his State House predecessor John Bennett for the Congressional District 2 seat being vacated by Congressman Markwayne Mullin, who in turn is seeking the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Jim Inhofe.

Bennett held the State House District 2 seat from 2010 to 2018, and helped Olsen get in office as his replacement. Olsen was unopposed in 2020. Bennett is the current chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party, and one of six announced Republican candidates so far.

Here is Olsen's endorsement:

The congressional seat for congressional district two will soon be open. The present chairman of the state republican party, John Bennett has declared his candidacy.

John Bennett served honorably in the Oklahoma House of Representatives for eight years.  He was a man known for his strong Christian convictions, unwavering courage and speaking ability that was regarded as both aggressive and eloquent.  He is a consistent conservative, who stood for the right, regardless of the cost.

He also served valiantly in the United States Marine Corp for many years.  He served in an elite unit in many hazardous missions in different places around the world.

I am happy to endorse John Bennett for Congressional District number two!
