The Tulsa World reports:
Oklahoma Republican Party chairman John Bennett told reporters that Sen. James Lankford’s decision not to object to the results of the 2020 presidential election after the Jan. 6 insurrection was proof that the senator couldn’t keep promises made to constituents.
Bennett reportedly also said being a Republican doesn’t necessarily make someone “the right pick.”
“It’s more unheard of than it is rare,” Lankford said of Bennett’s supporting the incumbent Republican’s opponent. “I’d say it’s highly unusual for a state party chair in any state in America to come out and say, ‘I’m not going to at least be neutral.’”
