TULSA, OK: Dr. Everett Piper, a well respected local and national conservative leader, personally endorsed Captain Andy Coleman in his race for U.S. Congress. Dr. Piper, the president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, first announced his endorsement a year ago.
“I first endorsed Andy Coleman’s congressional campaign last April,” shared Dr. Piper. “No doubt some were not following this race closely back then. But what I believed then, I believe today – and it bears repeating. So I will.”
“Oklahomans living in the First District have been well served by Jim Bridenstine, our outgoing congressman, who represented us with conviction and courage,” Dr. Piper expressed. “I firmly believe that Andy Coleman is the candidate most capable of carrying that baton from Jim; to be the type of authentic, conservative leader needed by our communities and country. His unique background demonstrates a willingness and capacity to serve in complex and even hostile areas. This will serve him well in the House of Representatives, and help him to be as effective as possible. For all these reasons, I am pleased to personally endorse Andy Coleman in his campaign for U.S. Congress.”
“I was overwhelmed when I first learned of Dr. Piper’s endorsement, and I remain profoundly grateful,” said Coleman. “Dr. Piper was one of the first to step up and lend his support, and that’s not lost on me. I am truly honored to have his backing.”
Dr. Piper’s early endorsement has since been joined by the endorsements of several other conservative champions, both nationally and locally. They include former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, Congressman Jim Jordan, Congressman Mark Meadows, and former Oklahoma House GOP Floor Leader Pam Peterson.
