Oklahoma’s Sen. James Lankford named keynote speaker at Lincoln Days

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – U.S. Sen. James Lankford, R-Oklahoma, has been selected as this year’s keynote speaker at the Friday night banquet at the 2017 Missouri Lincoln Days.

A member of the U.S. Senate, Lankford has represented Oklahoma as a Republican in Congress since 2010. During his time in the U.S. House of Representatives, he was Chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee. He now serves on several committees in the Senate.

Sen. Lankford is a member of the U.S. Senate and has represented the State of Oklahoma since 2010 when he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.  In the U.S. House, he was named Chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee and currently serves on several distinguished committees in the Senate.

Considered by many to be a strong and vocal advocate of fiscal discipline and government accountability, Lankford has been one of the leaders in the fight to cut burdensome government regulations.

“Republicans had widespread success on Election Day thanks to strong conservative leaders like Sen. James Lankford,” Todd Graves, Chairman of the Missouri Republican Party, said.  “Sen. Lankford has been a guiding light during his time in Washington, holding strong to his convictions and to our Constitution.  Lincoln Days will give Missourians across the state an opportunity to thank Sen. Lankford for his service, and to hear about how he plans to move this country forward alongside his colleagues in Congress and the Trump administration.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Sen. Lankford to this year’s Lincoln Days and couldn’t be more pleased to have such a strong voice as a part of our Friday night banquet,” Cheryl Dawson-Spaulding, President of the Missouri Association of Republicans, said.  “Conservative principles are important to Missouri Republicans, and Sen. Lankford is someone who has continuously made those values a priority in Washington.”

The Oklahoma senator will join several of Missouri’s Republican leaders at the event, where they are expected to discuss their visions for the state and the nation.

The 2017 Missouri Lincoln Days will take place at the University Plaza Hotel in Springfield, Mo. on February 24 – 26th.  The cost to attend the event is $60 if pre-registered, or $75 at the door.
