U.S. Sen Jim Inhofe Endorses Mary Fallin for Oklahoma Governor

OKLAHOMA CITY – U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe officially endorsed Mary Fallin in her race for Oklahoma governor today. He will be spending the day on the campaign trail with Fallin and attending a meet-and-greet reception with her in Marietta.

“Mary Fallin is a lifelong conservative with the experience, the vision and the backbone to move Oklahoma forward,” said Inhofe. “As a congresswoman, Mary took her Oklahoma values to Washington and stood up to President Obama and against bad policies like ‘cap and trade’ and government-run health care. I know she’ll be the kind of tough, smart governor we need and I’m proud to support her candidacy.”

Fallin said she was glad to have Inhofe’s support and praised his record in the United States Senate. “Jim has always been a strong, conservative voice who represents Oklahoma well,” she said. “I’m grateful to him for taking the time to hit the trail with me today.”

Inhofe and Fallin will be attending meetings in Lawton today prior to travelling to the Marietta meet-and-greet. They will also be campaigning in Tulsa together on Monday.
