Oklahoma's New Republican Leadership.

    Today's Oklahoma Republican Party has some of the finest new party candidates for the upcoming State Convention.  All of the candidates have volumes to further the conservative political values of Oklahoma's Republicans. While many in the party may have limited interaction with some or all of the 4 major candidates; a bit of research will quickly result in a wealth of insight.
    This is our first state convention which does not have a gender mandate for the elections. In past year, going back to the Gerald Ford era, we had to select a man for one office and a woman for the other.
