Gov. Keating Endorses Jason Reese for State House

OKLAHOMA CITY — Former Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating endorsed Jason Reese for Oklahoma House of Representatives, District 83, citing Reese’s experience and vision.

“The people of Oklahoma recognize that now is not the time for the status quo,” Gov. Keating said. “We need energetic, conservative reformers in the legislature to enact the kind of policies that will improve our state’s standing in the country, and indeed the world.  I’ve known Jason Reese for many years and consider him a friend.  He has a positive vision for Oklahoma and the ability to bring people together.  His focus on opportunity for blue-collar Oklahomans is a refreshing change from the tired platitudes that characterize so much political discourse today.  Jason is the right candidate to bring a mixture of public and private sector experience to the State House and get down to business on day one.  With him, we can skip the on-the-job training and get to work.  I’m proud to endorse Jason Reese for House District 83.”

Jason Reese welcomed Governor Keating’s endorsement, “I am honored to have the support of Governor Keating.  His administration pioneered the kind of vigorous conservative reform so critical for Oklahoma’s future.  I take his endorsement as a charge to keep and will work hard to use the experience I have gained to serve the people of Oklahoma.”

Reese is a partner in a law firm in downtown Oklahoma City.  He served as a staff attorney in the Oklahoma House of Representatives from 2005 to 2006 before leaving to enter the private sector.  In 2016, he was appointed to the Merit Protection Commission, where he has gained valuable expertise in understanding the operation of state agencies across Oklahoma.

The Republican primary for District 83 occurs on June 26, with the general election on November 6, 2018.  For more information on Jason Reese, please visit
