This is not the time for partisan bickering.
This is not the time for politics as usual. Some of us are Democrats. Some of us are Republicans. Some of us are Independents. Above all, we must be Oklahomans first.
Oklahomans value our children and our seniors.
Oklahomans value traditions of faith. Oklahomans value our heroes, our veterans. Oklahomans value innovation and the creative arts.
We must give Oklahoma families the opportunity to thrive and prosper.
We must give all Oklahomans the tools necessary to pursue the American dream. And then, we must get out of the way.
What unites Oklahomans today is what has always united us: Our unshakable faith.
Our love of family and compassion for others. The unlimited promise of a hopeful future.
