2 primary candidates endorse Calvey in OK County DA runoff

Conservative stalwart Kevin Calvey almost cleared the Oklahoma County District Attorney primary without a runoff (49.97% of the vote), falling short by 30 votes - there is a recount ongoing. Earlier this week, the two candidates who did not make the runoff endorsed him:


OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (July 5, 2022) – Former Republican primary candidates for Oklahoma County District Attorney, Jacqui Ford and Robert W. Gray, are endorsing Kevin Calvey in the primary runoff election. Both of them say Calvey is the only candidate left in the race who can reverse the deep dysfunction that currently pervades the D.A.’s office.

“I ran for Oklahoma County District Attorney because I’ve seen firsthand how desperately reform is needed within that office,” Jacqui Ford said. “Kevin Calvey has committed to bringing much of the reform that I have advocated for. His opponent openly says that David Prater’s office is a well-oiled machine and refuses to consider new ideas or any changes to the status quo. This leaves victims, defendants, and the community with no hope for meaningful justice. Voters have two choices in this runoff election. We can choose to continue the corruption and malfeasance of the David Prater era or we can restore the credibility to Oklahoma County’s D.A. office by electing Kevin Calvey who is committed to moving us forward in a meaningful and just way. I am voting for Kevin Calvey.”

Robert W. Gray agrees.

“I ran for District Attorney to bring much-needed change to the D.A.'s office,” said Gray. “Kevin Calvey is running on a platform of reform to restore confidence in the D.A.'s office and I believe he can get the job done. Kevin is a smart and seasoned lawyer who has proven himself as a conservative stalwart for more than 20 years. I am proud to endorse Kevin Calvey for Oklahoma County D.A. in the runoff and general election.”

In the June 28 primary election, Calvey received 26,975 votes (49.97 percent) while Gayland Gieger garnered 12,548 votes (23.25 percent). Calvey fell just 30 votes short of avoiding a runoff.    

The U.S. Army awarded Calvey the Bronze Star Medal for his mission prosecuting terrorists in Iraq.  Calvey is a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center and has been a practicing attorney in Oklahoma since 1994.  He currently serves as an Oklahoma County Commissioner.  Calvey and his wife, Toni, live in Oklahoma City with their 7 children.
