Lankford Statement on Retirement of Senator Jim Inhofe

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) issued a statement following the announcement by Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) that he plans to retire from the US Senate on January 1, 2023: 

“Cindy and I are deeply grateful for the service and friendship of Jim and Kay Inhofe. The Senate is losing a warrior. His absence will be felt, and he will be missed. But we are thrilled for him and Kay, along with their family, to get more time together in the days ahead. 

“His legacy in the Senate will be remembered as a fighter for our military service members and our nation’s infrastructure. Oklahomans will remember his leadership when they’re driving on sound highways and bridges—but he will also be known for his love for Jesus and his love for sharing Jesus with the world. 

“On behalf of Oklahoma, we are grateful for the dedication he and Kay have given to our state. He will truly be missed in the Senate.”
