Editorial: Vote for Rep. Jim Bridenstine

Four years ago, U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine said he would not vote for John Boehner as Speaker of the House.

Even though he was threatened and told he would lose key committee assignments, Bridenstine stayed true to his word and voted against the Republican Speaker.

And he lost no committee assignments.

Bridenstine is running for his third and final term in the House. He said he would run three times and step down and that is what he plans to do.

Part of problem in Congress is that career politicians get elected and stay elected forever. Term limits in the Oklahoma Legislature has had a serious effect on breaking up the good old boy network and pumping accountability  back into the process. Bridenstine is unquestionably conservative and arguably the most popular politician in Oklahoma because he does what he says he will do.

Bridenstine’s extensive military background is invaluable. His education in economics helps shape legislative opinion as he tries to get America back on solid financial ground.

Bridenstine is an ardent supporter of the right to life. He is a champion for the right to bear arms and he fights constantly to preserve the religious freedoms that are supposed to be enforced from the Constitution. Rep. Bridenstine is  genuine conservative, one of the smartest members of the House and a devoted father and family man.

The Tulsa Beacon enthusiastically endorses U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives.
