Changing the culture of the Senate
We are just weeks away from Election Day and I am optimistic that voters in Oklahoma and across the country are ready to make a difference for the future of our country.
This election year is an historic opportunity to send new leadership to Washington and change the way Congress works.
As I have traveled around Oklahoma during this campaign, I have been asked many times about what is happening in other Senate races around the country. Many of you are curious to know who some of the other Senate candidates are who would join our cause in fighting reckless and wasteful spending, holding career politicians and bureaucrats accountable to the American people, and restoring the principles of limited government given to us by our Founders.
I am hopeful that there are several emerging leaders who, if elected on November 2, will serve with the perspective that caring more about the next generation is more important than the next election.
Many of these candidates have tough races in their home states but it is my hope that they can win their races and join me in Washington to help change the culture of the Senate:
Joe Miller (Alaska)
Pat Toomey (Pennsylvania)
Ken Buck (Colorado)
Christine O’Donnell (Delaware)
Marco Rubio (Florida)
Dino Rossi (Washington)
Ron Johnson (Wisconsin)
Sharron Angle (Nevada)
Kelly Ayotte (New Hampshire)
Jim Huffman (Oregon)
Carly Fiorina (California)
Roy Blunt (Missouri)
Len Britton (Vermont)
I truly believe this is an election year opportunity like no other and I am excited about the possibility of serving in the Senate with these leaders who will work with me to do what’s right and best for our country and for the future of our kids and grandkids.
Thank you for the support you have shown to me and my efforts in the Senate for nearly six years. Together, we have made a difference in many ways but there is so much work left to do to help restore our country. I look forward to the opportunity to serve our state for a second and final term in the Senate and continue the work you sent me to do in Washington.
Again, thank you for your support and for caring about the future of America.
