Lankford Picks Up Shane Jett Endorsement

Rep. Shane Jett, fourth place finisher in the Republican primary for Congress in the 5th District, made it official today with his endorsement of James Lankford in the runoff.

Lankford faces former Rep. Kevin Calvey.

Jett said today, "On August 24th, voters have the opportunity to choose the republican nominee who will likely become our next U.S. Congressman. That day, Ana and I will be voting for James Lankford. Throughout the campaign and today, James has had only one interest in mind: to serve the residents of the 5th Congressional District.

"James has been truthful about his work experience, transparent about his motivations and never misled anyone about his professional background. With James, what you see is what you get. His sincerity, honesty and candor gives me confidence to say unequivocally and emphatically that James Lankford is the best choice for this Republican run off on August 24th. For me and my family, it comes down to one fundamental ingredient: character and more to the point integrity. My wife, Ana, and I hope you join us in supporting James Lankford with your vote, your finances and your volunteer time."

The third place finisher in the primary, Rep. Mike Thompson, previously endorsed Lankford, as has Rick Flanigan, Calvey's most outspoken critic.
