TULSA, OK: Today, Captain Andy Coleman announced he has received the endorsement of Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH).
“Congress needs more conservative veterans like Andy Coleman who will bring an outsider’s perspective to Capitol Hill,” stated Congressman Jim Jordan. “I know Andy will stand firmly in defense of our conservative values. He will fight to keep our nation safe, secure our border, defund Planned Parenthood and work to undo Obamacare. The people of Oklahoma can count on Andy Coleman to represent their conservative values with courage and conviction.”
In 2016, Politico called Congressman Jordan the “most powerful Republican in the House after Paul Ryan.” Jordan has been an advocate of the taxpayer – looking for waste, fraud and abuse in Washington – and his conservative record earned him accolades from groups like Citizens against Government Waste and the Family Research Council. He also helped found the House Freedom Caucus.
“I am absolutely thrilled to receive Congressman Jordan’s endorsement,” expressed Andy Coleman. “He is a genuine conservative leader who I deeply respect, and I am truly humbled to have his support.”
Jordan’s endorsement comes on the heels of a string of high-profile endorsements for Coleman’s campaign, including former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, Congressman Jody Hice, Dr. Everett Piper and Congressman Tom Garrett. Coleman has also received the endorsement of multiple national veteran’s groups.
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, former intelligence officer, and military veteran of Iraq. Coleman previously served with conservative organizations like the Federalist Society and Christian Legal Society. In recent years, Coleman led field efforts to aid persecuted Christians in hostile and restricted countries for the Voice of the Martyrs, a Christian ministry based in Bartlesville. Andy and his wife, Liz, have three children and reside in Owasso.
