One only needs to have intercepted some of the Abby Broyles media blitz on TV radio, internet, and print. You hear the tagline and principle argument; "We need someone who shows up.."
On the face of it, Broyles indicts her own party's leader, Joe Biden. that's a gift to the Trump Oklahoma 2020 campaign. It throws Biden under the bus! Any of the journalists who cover Jim Inhofe's daily rounds will see clearly that he hasn't missed a step. Not mentally, not physically.
But it doesn't stop there. This campaign cycle has been overshadowed by ethnic issues and inclusivity. As the daughter of an Iranian immigrant father, Stephanie Bice is especially empathetic, having faced ignorant questions over the past 40 years. Kendra Horn shocked the political nation 2 years ago when she defeated a lethargic incumbent.
Bice runs circles around Horn. She's a 4th generation Oklahoman (on her mother's side). Her father is an Iranian immigrant. She's been the CFO of a successful high tech corporation. She not only has been sent to the State senate, she was re elected and now chairs the Finance Committee of the Oklahoma Senate. She took on the very overdue reforms of Oklahoma liquor laws and navigated solutions that everyone can live with.
Bice will use those same skills in Washington to help Donald Trump get his congressional agenda passed. Horn voted to impeach Trump, and can't find a single good thing to say about him.
Younger voters may also identify with Bice. She looks at least a decade younger than Horn. But the reality is that Horn just looks older.
