Grassroots Efforts Pay Off in Enid, Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY, MARCH 13, 2024 – Enid residents and Democrats demonstrate the power of working together as a community to confront white nationalism and extremism in their city. The Oklahoma Democratic Party supports the recall election of Judd Blevins, taking place April 2nd.

It was 2017 on the University of Virginia campus when national neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups met for a night of hatred, and Judd Blevins, now an Enid, Oklahoma Councilman in Ward 1, is seen holding a tiki torch and marching with the angry mob on the campus.

This was unacceptable to many Enid residents who knew of Blevins’s ties to neo-Nazism once he decided to run. However, he convinced voters to elect him using his military record and claims that he wasn’t the one in the photos.

“As soon as the election was over and the Nazi had won, we set out to determine how we could legally remove him,” commented Nancy Presnall, Garfield County Democratic Party Chair. “We waited the required six (6) months and then set about to start a recall petition. We did give Blevins the opportunity to denounce his involvement in white supremacy, but he refused, so we proceeded with the petition. We got 350 signatures, passing the needed 243. Once submitted and vetted, the recall election was scheduled.”

Through local involvement and grassroots efforts, a community came together to make a difference, and the Oklahoma Democratic Party congratulates Nancy Presnall, Connie Vickers, and the residents of Enid, Oklahoma, for their dedication to ousting white nationalism and extremism in our state.
