NOTE TO OKLAHOMA ACTIVISTS, Bob Linn (OCPAC President)The state of the Church is a matter of concern and requires our continued prayer and involvement. A weak Church does not, however, relieve us of the very responsibilities we have been urging God’s people to assume for more than a year now. I write this today to respond to a group of “Christian activists” who have indicated they will be inactive this Tuesday when the opportunity to vote for Kevin Stitt presents itself. Yet, Governor Stitt represents the conservative political leadership that will mean our best chance for an open door at the very top of Oklahoma government. OCPAC and Oklahoma’s other conservative groups will never have the ear of Mick Cornett. We have that possibility with Kevin Stitt. I urge all our readers and the 36,000 Dan Fisher voters to help place a potential friend in the Governor’s seat on Tuesday!
Pastor Paul Blair's Take on the Republican Runoff ElectionIn 2016, I decided to support Ted Cruz for President. While none of the candidates checked every box, he was the one with whom I was most comfortable. As we know, Donald Trump won the nomination. In the general election, I crossed my fingers and voted against Hillary and voted for Trump. Although there are days I shake my head, by and large, I have been pleased with the majority of President Trump's decisions. In 2018, I was a strong supporter of my dear friend Dan Fisher. Dan was a known commodity. We knew exactly what we'd get with Dan. Unfortunately, money matters in campaigns and we didn't have the money to gain the necessary name ID for Dan to win. So here we are. Either Drew Edmondson, Mick Cornett or Kevin Stitt will be our next Governor. I cannot support Edmondson. He is honest in his campaign, but he honestly supports things I don't - higher taxes, government control, abortion on demand, LGBT agenda, etc. I like Mick personally. I remember his days as a sportscaster. However, Mick was wrong in leading OKC in creating a special "protected class" for LGBT personnel. LGBT is not a race or gender; it is behavior that the Bible classifies as sinful. He intentionally betrayed Oklahomans who still believe the Bible is God's Word. At best, Mick is a moderate Republican along the lines of a John Kasich. Much like Trump, Kevin Stitt is an unknown. However, I have had the opportunity to visit with him on several occasions since the primary and two things impress me. 1) He is a successful businessman who understands a balance sheet and demands accountability. That is something we must have as our current state government is a circus. 2) He recognizes areas in which he does not have great depth and needs help. A good leader doesn't have to have all the answers, but must surround himself with counselors that are experts in their fields and do have the answers. I am hopeful that Governor Stitt will surround himself with "our people" - small government, freedom loving, abortion hating, state sovereignty minded counselors. If we support him and he trusts us, we will have that opportunity. If we attack him and alienate him, why would he trust us? Is Stitt a sure thing? Nope. But consider all the "sure things" who conned OCPAC during the interview process and currently hold office at 23rd and Lincoln. The only sure things for Governor had the last names of Brogdon and Fisher, but I know what we'll get with Edmondson or Cornett. I will be voting for Kevin Stitt for Governor. Mary turned out to be Oklahoma's biggest disappointment. I am hopeful that Stitt will be Oklahoma's most pleasant surprise.
