David Blankenship, the former President of the Air Force Association and the Oklahoma National Bank announced his endorsement of Captain Andy Coleman for the open congressional seat in Oklahoma’s First District.
“As a former national president of the Air Force Association, and as an Oklahoman, I know Andy Coleman can be trusted to defend our nation’s freedoms with the same honor he did as a captain in the U.S. Air Force. He’s the right person for the right job at the right time – period. The time Andy spent in the Middle East, both in the military and in serving persecuted Christians, has given him a depth of experience and knowledge of that dangerous part of the world that is critically needed in the U.S. Congress today. Andy’s life experiences give him a unique perspective and unmatched skillset that will serve Oklahoma well in Congress,” stated David Blankenship.
“I’m incredibly honored to have yet another veteran and military leader join our growing ranks. Our campaign is picking up momentum because our message of sending a battle-tested conservative to Congress continues to resonate,” stated Coleman.
Blankenship’s endorsement follows the former Acting Secretary of the Air Force Tidal McCoy, Support and Defend PAC and Combat Veterans for Congress.
Captain Andy Coleman is seeking the Republican nomination for the open congressional seat in Oklahoma’s First District. He is an Air Force Academy graduate and former intelligence officer who served in the Middle East. He is the only candidate in the race with military and national security experience – critical skill sets in short supply in the House. For six years, Coleman led efforts to aid persecuted Christians in 17 hostile and restricted countries, as the Middle East Regional Director for the Voice of the Martyrs, a Christian ministry based in Bartlesville.
