Vice President Mike Pence rallies Tulsa voters for Stitt

Vice President Mike Pence rallies Tulsa voters for Stitt (KTUL)

In political terms, it was a who's who of Republicans dishing out a buffet of endorsements for Kevin Stitt.

"He's one who knows how to get things done," said Senator Jim Inhofe.

"He's somebody that understands what its like to create those jobs," said Representative Markwayne Mullin.

"His simple straightforward businessman's perspective," said Senator James Lankford.

"Kevin Stitt is going to drive a growing Oklahoma economy," said Vice President Mike Pence.

All of it, music to the ears of the roughly 1,700 in attendance.

"This is kind of like an extended family reunion with conservatives coming in," said David Arnett.

"I think it's definitely going to solidify the republican base," said Chris Conner.

"God's will is going to be done and we're going to have quite a red wave," said one woman.

From the VP, multiple comparisons of Stitt and Trump as businessmen, which resonated with the audience.

"Like that businessman turned president, Kevin Stitt is an outsider who's going to bring his practical experience and results-orientated leadership in to the state house," said Pence.

"I see Mr. Stitt as a complimentary Oklahoma Trump," said Guy Donahue.

"How well things have been going with the economy and Nafta, it's really hard to argue anything against the republican platform, other than the president's rhetoric if you don't like that," said Conner.

As for controversy, there wasn't any. No surprise banners or protesters, unless you count that Texas fan.

"I got a guy wearing a University of Texas shirt right in front of me," laughed Rep. Mullin.

A red rally to keep any blue wave at bay.

"Just keep doing what he's doing, Edmondson's as good as dead," said Donahue.

Kevin Stitt has the Vice Presidential seal of approval.

"And make Kevin Stitt the next Governor of the state of Oklahoma," said Pence.
