Cheyenne, OK – Frank Lucas released the following statement after voters overwhelmingly re-elected him by a margin of 78%-21% to the U.S. House of Representatives to serve in the 117th Congress:

“I am deeply honored that my neighbors, my fellow Oklahomans, the voters of the Third District overwhelmingly voted for me to continue to be their voice in Washington, D.C. Whether you’re a Republican, Democrat, or Independent, I serve as your voice in Congress- representing all of those who call Oklahoma’s Third District home.

“Moving forward, I’ll continue to stand up for Oklahoma’s agriculture producers, ensuring they have the resources and support they need in order to continue to feed and clothe the world. With more than 28,000 family farms in Oklahoma’s Third District, farming is a way of life and it’s critical we work to make sure more family farms are thriving- not declining. 

“I’ll continue to ensure that every school child is provided the best opportunities and resources in order to be successful in life. Whether our communities’ school children go to a higher education institution or a vocational school, it’s important they’re provided a high-quality, diverse elementary and secondary education led by our steadfast, hard-working teachers.

“Finally, as we continue to take the necessary, personal precautions to fight the spread of the coronavirus, we must ensure our hospitals, rural health clinics, and Main Street small businesses remain the backbone and economic engines of our communities. We all must take the appropriate action to protect our neighbors and elders from this deadly virus. I’m confident that with those responsible actions, and the delivery of a vaccine, we will return to normalcy and once again see our communities’ small businesses and economies thrive. 

“Again, I am deeply honored to have been elected to represent the Third District Congressional District of Oklahoma. As your Congressman, I work to ensure that Congress is accountable to all Oklahomans. Thank you to everyone who made a plan to vote and voted. I look forward to continuing to work for the great people of Oklahoma’s Third District.”
