1/23/08 U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign announced today that Oklahoma Speaker of the House of Representatives Lance Cargill (R-Harrah) has endorsed John McCain for president. Speaker Cargill will serve as the Legislative Chair for John McCain's campaign in Oklahoma and contribute to the growing grassroots movement organizing for the February 5th primary.
"The people of Oklahoma respect John McCain's common sense conservatism and the straight talk he brings to the race for president," explained Speaker Cargill. "John McCain is a true fiscal and social conservative and can unite our party in victory this November. For his entire career he has fought for the rights of the unborn and to ensure the sanctity of human life. That is why I am proud to support his candidacy."
John McCain thanked Speaker Cargill for his support, stating, "Speaker Cargill has served the people of Oklahoma honorably, and I am proud to have such a dedicated public official helping lead my campaign in Oklahoma. His Oklahoma roots and leadership will prove invaluable as we work towards victory on February 5th."
As the nation's youngest state House Speaker, Rep. Lance Cargill, 35, began his first term as Speaker in January 2007. First elected to the state House in 2000 by defeating a 12-year incumbent, Cargill recently won a fourth two-year term as state representative. Cargill's first legislative session as Speaker has been marked by new conservative reforms: continued tax relief for working Oklahomans, a cut in government spending, and landmark legislative accomplishments such as pro-life and immigration reforms. Cargill lives just down the road from his boyhood home with his wife Amber and their two sons, Jackson and Henry. His sons represent the fifth generation of the family to live in eastern Oklahoma County.
