I’ve worked with James for years and I have seen his tireless efforts to ensure our American values were shared at home and abroad.

President, SBA-List

“We are proud to endorse our friend and ally Senator James Lankford for re-election. He has proven his courage and dedication to unborn children and their mothers again and again. Most recently he has spearheaded the ongoing fight in the Senate to preserve the Hyde Amendment, longstanding policy that has saved nearly 2.5 million lives by keeping taxpayers out of the abortion business, from attack by pro-abortion Democrats. He is a leader in the effort to modernize our nation’s radical abortion laws at the Supreme Court, in line with science and overwhelming public consensus. We look forward to his victory so he can continue this vital work, serving the deeply pro-life state of Oklahoma and standing up to abortion extremism in Washington.”

Lankford has been a staunch advocate for the rights of the American people and has won respect for the men and women in our military. We encourage all Oklahomans to join us in supporting Sen. Lankford in his re-election campaign.”

We need to do everything we can to keep him in the battle against the swamp.”

Craig DeRoche

OKFB Ag PAC chairman

“In an increasingly urban world, it is crucial to have elected officials who understand the importance of the agriculture industry and uphold the values of rural Oklahoma.

Matt Lay

President of Tulsa IAFF Local 176

“As Chairman of the Tulsa FirePAC that advocates for the more than 700 active and retired Tulsa Firefighters, I am proud to endorse James Lankford in the Republican Primary to represent all Oklahomans in the US Senate. When it comes to issues that affect our members, we know we have a champion in James.

“Whenever there have been issues at the federal level, we know that we can reach out to James and his team. This has included funding for homeland security grants that assist our men and women on the frontlines of our community, sponsoring legislation to eliminate cancer-causing PFAS in firefighting implements, to his support for the creation of a national registry to research occupational cancer in the fire service. The most recent example was just last week when the Tulsa Fire Department graduated a recruit academy of 55 firefighters, the biggest class in our 122-year history, thanks largely to the advocacy of James and his work at the US Capitol.”

Sal Russo

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist

“Senator Lankford is a principled conservative leader with a sound commitment to fighting against a government with burdensome regulations that are destroying small businesses. Throughout his time in the Senate, he has consistently fought on behalf of Oklahomans against the liberal elite who are determined to ruin our economy with their destructive anti-business policies. Bad economic policies result in less opportunity for all Oklahomans. Because of his persistent efforts to stand up for the people of Oklahoma and small business owners, Citizens Against Government Waste awarded Senator Lankford the “Guardian of the Small Business” and the “Taxpayer Super Hero” awards for his stellar record of fiscal conservatism. Senator Lankford also scored as the Senate’s top-ranked “Taxpayers Friend” by the National Taxpayers Union for his efforts to lower taxes and reduce the size of government. “A true statesman who always puts the taxpayers first, Senator Lankford has earned the respect and endorsement from those in his home state like Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt, Lt. Governor Matt Pinnell, and U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe. Senator Lankford has also been endorsed by his conservative colleagues in the Senate, U.S. Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz. Senator Lankford is a man of deep faith, and his values guide his actions. He has the unique ability to work with his colleagues from across the aisle to get things done without wavering over his conservative principles. His humble integrity combined with his sound fiscal policies and voting record makes him the best candidate to continue the fight in Congress against the liberal Washington, D.C. machine. We are honored to offer our endorsement to Senator Lankford for re-election to the United States Senate and are confident he’ll continue to champion our Tea Party principles of reducing spending, limiting the size of government, and restoring American prosperity.”
