Who should be the Oklahoma Republican Party Chair?
This afternoon (Sunday, October 11th, 2015) a replacement will be chosen for Oklahoma Republican Party Chairman.

The laws are specific to the State of Oklahoma.

On June 24th, I will be voting. There are people I would like to vote for, but can’t (I don’t live in their districts…).

Here is that list:

If you live in Oklahoma, heads up – there are two people in Congress you need to fire on June 24th – Frank Lucas and Tom Cole.

3rd Congressional District – Frank Lucas vs. Robert Hubbard

Frank Lucas was elected to Congress in 1994. In that time, he has earned a Heritage Action Score of 50% and a Freedom Index Score of 59%. Even worse is his Liberty Scorecard rating of 31%. Pathetic! He is the
