Lankford Wins Praises From Colleagues, Politico

Congressman James Lankford's first year in Congress is ending with superlatives from his colleagues and the influential publication Politico.

Of Lankford, Politico wrote: "James Lankford - This Oklahoma freshman looks like an adolescent, sounds like Barry White, and has the unlikeliest of résumés for success in politics. But the former Christian camp counselor has proven to be a quiet, disciplined and effective voice for his colleagues, earning respect on the Budget Committee. He also holds a safe Republican seat in his state, meaning that if he can keep the conservatives in his district happy, the freshman lawmaker should have a long career in Washington."
