Former State Rep. John Bennett
Former State Representative John Bennett has announced his candidacy to be the next Chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party.
"As a retired Marine, I love this country and have protected her freedom," Bennett said, "and the best way I can help protect Oklahoma at this point is to provide strong leadership for Oklahoma's Republican Party."
"Since we want to leave our children a stronger America, now is the time to fight for that vision. Patriots can no longer afford to circle the wagons; it is now time to lead the way and storm the beaches to take back the Republic that we hold so dear," Bennett continued. "As your Oklahoma Republican Party Chairman, I will pave the way for elected officials to stand up and be heard."
“I look forward to working with patriots across the state and Nation, both those I met while serving in the Oklahoma House of Representatives and those I haven't met yet, in the coming months. I believe I am uniquely qualified for such a time as this. We will work together to build a strong coalition across the Republican party to make us a stronger and united Party. Together we will fight for Oklahomans and bring Oklahoma back to its roots of conservative values and core beliefs,” Bennett concluded.
John Bennett, a retired Marine First Sergeant and combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, represented House District 2 in the Oklahoma House of Representatives from 2010 to 2018. He is currently the Pastor of Lee Creek Assembly of God, and a small business owner. John Bennett lives in Sallisaw with his wife Nicole and their children.
The next Oklahoma Republican Party Chairman will be elected at the OKGOP’s Spring, 2021 convention. The Chairman position will be voted on by convention delegates.
