Lankford Mourns Passing of Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) released the following statement after the announcement of the passing of Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe, a veteran, patriot, family man, Jesus follower, Mayor of Tulsa, Congressman for the First District of Oklahoma, and long-time United States Senator:

“Cindy and I are deeply saddened about the loss of Oklahoma’s favorite son, Senator Jim Inhofe. We grieve along with our state and nation the loss of a true patriot for our American values and way of life. Jim was an institution in the Senate. He kept his relationship with Jesus, his family, and all Oklahomans as his priority. His passion for our military, aviation, energy, infrastructure, Africa, and our personal freedom was vital for our state and our nation. He was a true legend and a force to be reckoned with.

“Cindy and I pray along with his wife, Kay, their children, grandchildren, friends, and fellow Oklahomans for peace and comfort as they walk through this difficult season.”
