RJ Harris Picks up Big Endorsements – Rand Paul, OCPAC, and the RLC

Oklahoma- April 21, 2010

RJ Harris, U.S. Congressional candidate for Oklahoma’s 4th district, has picked up several big endorsements for his 2010 candidacy.

Rand Paul, a Republican U.S. Senate Candidate from Kentucky, endorsed by Sarah Palin and incumbent KY Senator Jim Bunning, endorsed RJ Harris this past summer saying:

I am pleased to enthusiastically endorse RJ Harris for Congress. I believe we stand on the precipice of a disaster. Our country is drowning in a sea of debt. Without significant change our country’s future is threatened. Bankruptcy comes in many forms. None of them pretty. Please do whatever you can to support RJ Harris for Congress. – Dr. Rand Paul

This extraordinary endorsement came early on in the Harris 2010 campaign. According to RJ:

Rand is one of the brightest rising stars in the Liberty Candidate movement and the GOP. With this endorsement he demonstrated his leadership and commitment to taking on the establishment backed bailout voters by supporting and endorsing up-and-coming Liberty Candidates that would be able to help him restore the Republic and the Constitution once elected. It is my high honor to be called to service beside Rand in Congress and to finally be able to return the endorsement having emerged as my incumbent opponent’s most serious threat since 2002. His recent endorsements from Sarah Palin and Senator Bunning are further proof that Rand has the principles, judgment and integrity necessary to fight for our individual liberty and state sovereignty from the U.S. Senate. – RJ Harris

The Oklahoma Conservative PAC also endorsed RJ Harris just a few weeks ago after Harris received 90% of the straw poll held at their March meeting. Charlie Meadows, chair of OCPAC, stated the following:

R.J. Harris has become an impressive candidate, improved much in his communication skills and understanding of how Washington should work rather than how it does work. If you want to vote for someone who will work to make a conservative difference, a true reformer, then vote for R.J. Harris. If you want a slick talking Republican that is the poster boy for, “go along to get along”, then vote for Tom Cole. – Charlie Meadows

In November of 2009, the Republican Liberty Caucus also endorsed RJ Harris stating:

The RLC Board of Directors selected Mr. Harris as one of its first endorsed candidates for the 2010 primary season because of his issue stances in support of individual rights, limited government, and free enterprise. We believe Mr. Harris will be a strong defender of liberty as a member of Congress and an outstanding representative for the people of Oklahoma.

RJ believes that these three endorsements help demonstrate for the voters of the 4th district that he has the principles, message, personality and articulation ability equal to the task of defeating the establishment-backed bailout-voting incumbent; (R) Tom Cole.

U.S. Congressional Candidate Alerted for the Afghanistan Surge

April 12, 2010

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

U.S. Congressional Candidate Alerted for the Afghanistan Surge

Oklahoma- April 12, 2010

RJ Harris, Candidate for Oklahoma’s 4th U.S. Congressional District, and 19 year veteran of the Army National Guard, has been alerted as part of the surge forces bound for Afghanistan sometime this summer. This will be CW2 Harris’ third combat tour having previously served in Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom. RJ announced his candidacy in January of 2009 initially responding to his opponent’s then recent vote for the Bailout. While the timing of this alert is unfortunate, Harris will remain in the race under the protections provided candidates activated for military service by 51 Okl. St. S 3.1 and 26 Okl. St. S 12-101.

“Knowing the high probability of deployments, patriotic civilian employers routinely hire, train and retain Guard Soldiers and I have complete faith that the voters in my district will show that same fidelity once convinced of my absolute commitment to the restoration of the Constitution, the Republic, their individual Liberty and Oklahoma’s sovereignty.”

Once on active duty, the RJ Harris 2010 Campaign will continue through the rigorous activities of the staff and through personal appearances around the district by allied Liberty Candidates and Tea Party activists willing to speak on RJ’s behalf. When asked about the unfortunate fact that his district would have no vote during the short months he is away RJ responded, “right now having no vote for a few months would be better than having more votes from Cole for bailouts, Pelosi’s 08 stimulus, the ACORN backed Housing Extension Act, Obama’s GIVE Act, funds for Planned Parenthood, or foreign aid to Africa when our own debt is pushing $12 Trillion.”
