Oklahoma City, OK—August 26, 2008: Oklahoma Republican Party Chairman Gary Jones today congratulated the Oklahomans who will be speaking at next week’s Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota. Senator Tom Coburn, Congressman Tom Cole, Congresswoman Mary Fallin and Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett will be representing the Sooner State.
“Next week will be great for America,” Jones said. “Not only will the Republican ideals of personal freedom and economic freedom be in the spotlight but all of America will get to see the common sense leadership we have here in Oklahoma.”
“Senator Tom Coburn, Congressman Tom Cole, Congresswoman Mary Fallin and Mayor Mick Cornett are leaders in our state and they deserve their moments in the national spotlight,” Jones continued. “They have been voted by their peers for positions in leadership. Leaders like these are part of the reason Oklahoma’s economy has stayed so strong.”
“I look forward to traveling to Minnesota to join Republicans from across the country in nominating John McCain and his vice-president. I look forward to working with our great Republican volunteers across the state to elect John McCain and our great Republican candidates,” Jones concluded.
