The level of suspicion, fear, and perhaps paranoia has elevated to a high level, this Spring, among some of Bridenstine's fellow congressional members, their staffers, & campaign workers.
The Oklahoman's Chris Casteel is reporting that many politicos connected to congressmen Russell, Cole, Lucas, & Mullin' along with Senator Lankford; are blaming Rep Jim Bridenstine of actively recruiting candidates throughout the state to challenge those sitting incumbents.
The plot would have originally started prior to last July, when Army officer & West Point graduate, Jarrin Jackson began his campaign effort. Yet the same folks floating the conspiracy theory say that it was brought about by the December vote on the Omnibus spending bill. Bridenstine was the sole opponent to the massive spending authorization. The US debt tripled in the time Rep Cole has been in congress.
