Scott Pruitt Joins Huckabee Campaign

Fmr. State Sen. Scott Pruitt Joins Huckabee Campaign

AP -- Former state Sen. Scott Pruitt will chair presidential candidate Mike Huckabee’s Oklahoma Leadership Committee.

Huckabee, who has been surging among Republican presidential candidates, said Thursday he and Pruitt share conservative values.

“He is well-respected within the Republican Party and throughout Oklahoma,” said Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas. “I welcome him to our organization and am thrilled that he is chairing our efforts in this important state.”

Pruitt was elected to the state Senate for two four-year terms beginning in 1998, and served as Republican whip and assistant Republican floor leader during his tenure in the legislature. He resigned his Senate seat to run for lieutenant governor in 2006, but was defeated in the GOP primary.

Pruitt is minority owner and general managing partner of the Oklahoma RedHawks minor league baseball team.

This is awesome! Scott Pruitt was an excellent choice, a well-respected conservative. The perfect man to lead the Huckabee campaign in Oklahoma!
