Press Release and Official Announcement For Immediate Release
Oklahoma R3publicans Endorse
for Oklahoma GOP State Chair
R3publicans – Republicans Restoring the Republic (R3s) is a purely grassroots group that formed in 2008 with a mission to Restore, Reenergize, and Reignite the Republican Party. We advocate for a limited Constitutional government that protects life, liberty, and property. We support sound money and balanced budgets through reductions in government spending rather than revenue generating schemes, and personal responsibility. We believe that less government will result in more personal freedom, peace, and prosperity. Now more than ever we recognize that we are at a crossroads not only as a party, but also as a nation.
Several years ago we met Amanda Teegarden who serves as the Executive Director of OK-SAFE, a group made up of individuals and coalition groups dedicated to the Principles of American Free Enterprise and the Constitutional Sovereignty of Oklahoma and the United States of America. As we worked together on projects targeting certain legislation, we were consistently impressed by Amanda’s coalition building skills, her dedication to principle, and her adherence to the stated and agreed upon goal(s).
Amanda has successfully protected the integrity of her own organization as well as the groups with which she has worked – skills absolutely necessary for a large operation like the Republican Party of Oklahoma. In addition to conducting the business of OK-SAFE with great fiscal integrity, Amanda also presents herself professionally with humility, style, and grace. She gives projects her time, her talent, and her prayers. She is a passionate and articulate spokesperson.
R3publicans is pleased that Amanda Teegarden has made the decision to seek the position of Oklahoma Republican Party State Chair. We believe that she is indeed the most qualified person for the job and we give her our enthusiastic endorsement.
Please join us in electing Amanda Teegarden April 20th in Oklahoma City. If you are a delegate, please make plans now to attend. We have lots of work to do in our precincts, our cities, our counties, and our state. With Amanda at the helm we are confident that together we Republicans will have an opportunity to Restore our Republic.

OK LABOR COMMISSIONER MARK COSTELLO ENDORSES HOUCHEN FOR OKLAHOMA SENATE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 29, 2012
”When I ran for Labor Commissioner in 2010, I campaigned on my commitment to bring sound business practices and constitutional principles to State Government. Howard Houchen shares these values and will be an invaluable asset to southeastern Oklahoma. He is unabashed in his love for his home region, and unashamed to stand strong for what is right for Oklahoma in general and right for SE Oklahoma in particular. I am proud to offer my endorsement of Howard Houchen as the right choice for State Senate, District 5,” Labor Commissioner Mark Costello stated.
Houchen will be facing Jerry Ellis (D-Valliant) on the November general election ballot. This race also has an unusual twist: Democrat incumbent Ellis, due to term limits, is only eligible to serve two years of the upcoming four year term. He will be forced to vacate the seat midway through the term if he is re-elected.
Houchen commented, “Commissioner Costello has a proven record of increasing government efficiency and accountability while controlling, and even decreasing, the costs to the hardworking taxpayers of Oklahoma. I share that vision and appreciate his leadership. I look forward to ensuring that the interests of the good folks in SE Oklahoma are heard loud and clear in Oklahoma City as we all work to achieve a more economically free and prosperous tomorrow.”
Houchen is a graduate of University of Oklahoma with a degree in Political Science, and boasts an MA in National Security Studies from the American Military University. With extensive international and small business expertise, he is extensively published in multiple conservative publications. He proudly raises his two sons alongside his wife Jeannie in the S.E. Oklahoma community of Hugo. He and his family are avid hunters and sportsmen, treasuring the bountiful natural resources that are plentiful in our beautiful state and rural communities.

Jack Hunter writes about the Republican party and Ron Paul:
Before Barack Obama became the biggest big government president in American history, George W. Bush held that title. The Republican Party of Bush nearly doubled the national debt and gave Americans the largest entitlement expansion since Lyndon Johnson. As Sen. Jim DeMint said of that time: “You could accuse Republicans of a lot of things, but you could never convict us of being too conservative!”
Unfortunately, most of the 2012 GOP presidential candidates remain far closer to what Bush’s Republican Party stood for than the constitutional conservatism espoused by Ron Paul. But this is not necessarily true of the party as a whole. Write’s Ed Kilgore at The New Republic:
“The reason Paul has been able to slowly build his base of support in the state is that, on most issues, his views no longer lie outside the mainstream of the party orthodoxy. It’s become one of the great clichés of 2012 that the GOP as a whole has moved significantly in Ron Paul’s direction since his last campaignin 2008, and on domestic issues, it’s largely true. Paul’s endless fulminations about profligate monetary policy and the evil Fed, as well as his draconian prescriptions for a radically smaller federal government, now all sound completely within the conservative mainstream.
