 Hugo, OK — On the heels of endorsements and public support from the National Federation of Independent Business, Oklahoma Labor Commissioner Mark Costello, and Senate President Pro Tempore Brian Bingman, Oklahoma 2A second amendment rights organization, Dr. Tom Coburn, the junior U.S. Senator for Oklahoma steps forward to ask for support and the vote of Oklahomans for State Senate Candidate Howard Houchen.

 Dr. Coburn stated, “We need leaders in the Oklahoma Senate who have the courage and commitment to find and eliminate wasteful spending, limit the growth of state government, and hold politicians and bureaucrats accountable to taxpayers.”

 “I expect Howard Houchen to be that kind of legislator, and I hope the voters of Senate District 5 will elect him on November 6.”

 Houchen responded, “I am so honored to have the giant of fiscal responsibility and a man of courage to speak the truth and find my candidacy worthy of public support. Dr. Coburn has been an inspiration by showing that government can work better, differently, and smaller, and we would be all the better for it. I intend to take the principles espoused by Dr. Coburn to the floor of the State Senate, showing my neighbors how we can improve our economic future by implementing common sense policies and rolling back hurtful ones in order to create a better future for Little Dixie and our Great State of Oklahoma!”

 Houchen recognizes that Constitutional principles trump special interests, and the guarantees of Life, Liberty and Property must be protected. He announced his campaign earlier this year to unseat long term politician Jerry Ellis, who is term-limited by law and will be required to vacate his seat halfway through the next term. Houchen is the only candidate on the ballot for the race that can serve the constituents of Oklahoma Senate 5 the entire four year term of office.
