Congressional candidate names campaign co-chairmen

Congressional candidate names campaign co-chairmen Blog

State Rep. Mike Thompson announced today that three business leaders will serve as co-chairman for his 2010 bid to win a seat in Congress.

Thompson, R-Oklahoma City, said Larry Nichols, David Rainbolt and Tim Duit will serve as co-chairmen of his campaign to win the 5th Congressional District post held by Mary Fallin. Fallin, R-Oklahoma City, is not seeking a third term to run for governor.

Nichols, chief executive officer of Devon Energy, said Thompson is known for his hard work and expertise in the transportation, business and energy fields and “has emerged as one of the foremost conservative policy experts and pro-business voices in the state House.”

Rainbolt, CEO of BancFirst, said Thompson’s common sense, conservative values and positive energy have made him “an effective leader in the state House and they will no doubt help him hit the ground running in Washington as our congressman.”

“During his tenure in the Legislature, Mike has fought successfully for tax cuts and called for much needed budget reforms,” said Duit, president of TTK Construction. “He is a leader in promoting the pro-growth and pro-business policies that we desperately need in Washington.”

Thompson is a commercial real estate agent. He was elected to the House in 2004, and is not seeking re-election to run for Falllin’s seat.
