Celebrating with Senator Glenn Coffee and his wife Lisa on election night.
On Tuesday, after 18 months of campaigning, I was elected to the Oklahoma State Senate, representing the 30th District that I have called home my entire life. We received over 5,000 votes and over 63 percent. This expression of support from our neighbors was a humbling experience.
I will be sworn-in this November, and it will be the honor of a lifetime to represent my community at the State Capitol.
I want to thank every single voter for their participation in this remarkable American experiment. I promise you that I will bring the same work ethic and passion that you saw on the campaign trail to this important public service.
I especially want to thank all of our supporters – our 500 donors, our hundreds of volunteers, the 100 members of our “One of Us” team, the hundreds of voters who displayed yard signs, and our thousands of Facebook friends and Twitter followers. Your support made this possible, and it encouraged us to keep pushing hard until the very end.
On behalf of Rachel and George, thank you again. I will not let you down. After I am settled at the Capitol, I hope you will stay in touch and come visit. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
With deepest gratitude,
Oklahoma State Senator-Elect, District 30
All votes are counted – We received 5,125 votes, and our opposition received 2,934 votes. We have won with over 63 percent! I am deeply humbled and honored to be the next State Senator from the 30th District of Oklahoma. Thank you so much for your support!
There is nothing left to say, but VOTE!

Today, in a front page, above-the-fold editorial, the Bethany Tribune strongly endorsed David Holt to be our next State Senator. Calling David “a person known by so many of us for his character, his integrity, his willingness to serve, and his commitment to our values,” the Tribune wrote “We need David Holt in the Oklahoma State Senate.”
The full editorial can be found here.
Today, the OKC Friday newspaper strongly endorsed David Holt to be our next State Senator. Calling David “a future shining star,” the Friday wrote “You can’t go wrong casting your ballot Tuesday for David Holt.”

Thank you so much to the two dozen volunteers that hand-addressed letters over the weekend. We could not do this without you, and your efforts are why we are one week from victory!
This weekend was much like many before, with a lot of knocking doors. For nine months, I have personally knocked on thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of doors. It has been a lot of work, but it has been rewarding, and I believe it is imperative for a representative to make that effort.
All that hard work is soon to pay off. We are now just eight days from victory!
I am honored to have received J.C. Watts’ endorsement today, via a phone call to the voters in my district.
We are just 11 days to victory!
If you are planning to vote in the Oklahoma primaries on Tuesday, July 27th, but will not be in town that day, you have options. However, there are deadlines you need to be aware of now.
You may vote absentee by mail, but your county election board must receive your application by Wednesday, July 21st.
You may also vote in-person absentee the Friday, Saturday and Monday before the election at the county election board.
More detailed information about these and other absentee options can be found here.
At that link, you will also be able to obtain the appropriate applications.
Voting in primaries is extremely critical, and especially in this situation, where the entire election will be decided on July 27th.
Thank you for your support!
Had a great day of knocking on doors! Now off to dinner with Rachel and George!
Enjoyed knocking on doors today. We are now into the ninth month of knocking!
