[Oklahoma City, OK, November 9, 2016] Statement by Mark Hammons Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair on Trump Win: 2016 was a Trump tornado and some very good Democratic candidates were its casualties. This cycle shows that Oklahoma, as well as the nation, is ready for a change. The establishment elite and political power brokers have failed us all.
What I fear Oklahomans have not yet realized is that in Oklahoma, the establishment and the political power brokers the Republican Party.
The question Oklahomans should ask is: Will the Republican Party heed the winds of change and go in a new direction? Will the Republicans stop favoring the elite and start taking care of grassroots people and their needs?
The Democratic Party has paid attention. We are going to be the voice of change for the people. And that voice will make the 2018 election picture very different.
