There will be a full menu of choices for Oklahoma's US Senate seat, this November. But only one of Oklahoma's political parties has a June primary. The newly re-recognized Libertarian Party has 2 candidates vying for the party nomination in the US Senate race. Robert Murphy(68) and Dax Ewbank(40) are both very solidly in the Libertarian philosophical mindset when it comes to political matters. They both have stepped up to provide state leadership for their party. But Dax Ewbank has placed himself into a position of greater transparency than Murphy appears to have.
Ewbank was a strong advocate for Liberty principles in the 2014 Republican Governor's race. Several respected conservatives endorsed Ewbank as a Republican candidate during that primary. Some of them were merely waging a protest vote against the incumbent, Mary Fallin. But the fact remains that Ewbank was the widely preferred means of demonstrating that discontent on the right.
This time Dax is running within the Libertarian party. He brings his pro-life convictions and strong passion to oppose discrimination in any form. Ewbank seeks to restore economic liberty by dismantling the many layers of federal government overreach into free enterprise. Ewbank is strongly encouraging real reform in our criminal justice policies, an initiative that many Republicans are coming around to in the past few months.
Some of Ewbank's policies will not sit well with most Democrats or Republicans, but Sooner Politics believes that the healthy debate will be better represented by choosing Dax Ewbank to be the Libertarian Nominee.
Dax Ewbank was raised in Fairview, Oklahoma. He and his wife of 16 years, Julie, currently reside in Guthrie where they are raising their eight children that range in ages from one to eighteen. Dax is employed as an information technology enterprise architect for a large healthcare organization in Oklahoma.
He is involved in many facets of Liberty activism in Oklahoma as well as in assisting with the leadership of the Oklahoma Libertarian Party. The Ewbank's are also active members of their parish of the Antiochian Christian Orthodox Church in Oklahoma City.
