Paul Cason announced today that he will be a legislative candidate for the Republican
nomination in House District 83.
“Oklahoma is facing tough times, and it is crucial that we have principled conservative leaders in office to guide our government,” Cason said. “As an attorney who works with businesses every day, I have helped Oklahomans overcome tough legal issues. As a lawmaker, I will use that same expertise to guide policy decisions.”
District incumbent Randy McDaniel, a Republican, is leaving office due to term limits. “It is time to stop talking about the major issues confronting Oklahoma and start working toward achieving some tangible results,” Cason said.
Cason has long been active in Republican politics, having served as a staff assistant to U.S. Sen. James Inhofe and as a field director in Alaska for the Republican National Committee during the 2014 election cycle. Cason interned in 2013 with then-Congressman James Lankford.
He earned his undergraduate degree from Purdue University where he studied History and Political Science. While at Purdue, Cason was involved in the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) and held several leadership roles. He earned a Juris Doctorate from the Oklahoma City University School of Law.
Cason is currently a partner with the Rosell Law Group, focusing on business and estate issues.
“To grow Oklahoma’s economy and create jobs, we need to elect legislators who understand how rules and regulations impact the private sector,” Cason said. “My mission as State Representative will be to focus Oklahoma government on its core duties and otherwise streamline and eliminate regulation whenever possible.”
Cason, 32, serves on the Infant Crisis Services Young Professionals Board. He attends All Souls Episcopal Church.
