As polls tighten, Oklahoma Gov. Stitt to host rallies with big GOP names
Gov. Kevin Stitt is hosting a pair of “Red Wave Rallies” in Oklahoma City and Tulsa this week.
Election day is next week, and Stitt will host a couple of nationally recognized names.
Cruz is a national figure who made a name for himself running for the GOP nomination for president in 2016, eventually losing to Donald Trump. Youngkin is a rising star and political newcomer who won an upset race in Virginia last year by touting parental rights and school choice issues – much like Stitt.
Other outside Republicans are taking notice of the race. Florida Gov. Ron Desantis endorsed Stitt Monday and the Republican Governors Association announced a “seven figure” advertising buy in Oklahoma earlier this month.
The Republican-turned-Democrat hasn’t gotten many endorsements from outside Oklahoma – one exception being from the National Education Association – but she has gotten some support here including recent endorsements by the state’s five largest tribes and the Tulsa World.
