It was believed the members attending the Oklahoma Republican Party convention over the weekend were going to censure their own GOP Senators, Jim Inhofe and James Lankford, because they voted in favor of recognizing President Biden’s electoral victory. When the vote was actually conducted, however, the move to officially censure the pair of Sooner State GOP Senators failed on a 93-122 count (43% favor; 57% oppose).
Sen. Lankford, on the ballot in 2022, has already drawn a GOP primary opponent in the person of pastor and Trump campaign supporter Jackson Lahmayer. Already announcing an endorsement for Mr. Lahmayer is former Oklahoma Republican Party chairman John Bennett.
