The districts shaded purple are not the only area where fiscal conservative and constitutionalist Republicans are planning to challenge the incumbents, but the map demonstrates an area of high priority. Activists all over the state are contacting their own county GOP offices and either expressing willingness to run or asking if a challenger has stepped up whom they can support with their money and/or volunteer efforts.
The good news is that there are also Republicans who are finding their own errors from last year's session and have realigned their compasses to a voting record which supports their creed and convictions. At this time last year there were only about 12 consistently fiscal conservative Republicans in the House. Yesterday we saw 24 showing fidelity to the OKGOP platform principles.
Muskogee Politico published responses from 4 of the 6 Republican Gubernatorial candidates (Richardson, Lamb, Jones, & Fisher), who a indicated a condemnation of the House's resolution. Cornett & Stitt have not responded.
