Trey Richardson of Sagac Public Affairs released the video and this statement:
“T.W. Shannon and his friends have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars airing ads attacking James Lankford that have been called ‘over the top’ and ‘deceitful’ to hide Shannon’s votes for higher debt and expanded Medicaid. It is clear that T.W. Shannon can’t stand on his own record so he would rather play in the mud. As Dr. Coburn said, Lankford is ‘a great man of character’ and Oklahomans know that James Lankford is the tested and proven conservative who will stand up for us.”
Richardson is a former fundraiser for Lankford.
Lankford is one of seven Republican candidates that are running for the U.S. Senate seat that is being vacated by Senator Tom Coburn, (R-OK) at the end of the 113th Congressional session. The primary is Tuesday, June 24.
Those running for the seat are former state Sen. Randy Brogdon, Andy Craig, Kevin Crow, Congressman James Lankford, Eric McCray, state Rep. T.W. Shannon, and Jason Weger. You can find more information about the candidates on our 2014 Elections page.
