Al McAffrey for Congress
Oklahoma's 5th District
Al McAffrey is seeking election for the U.S. 5th Congressional district and he needs your support. Last election season, he faced his first political defeat, when the Republicans swept the elections from coast to coast. This didn't damper-but only ignited his determination to serve in Washington, and to change the dynamics to a more collaborative effort between parties. He is running again this 2016 election, and feels confident he will best represent his fellow Oklahomans in Washington. McAffrey is a standout candidate because of his long history of working well across party lines. He's had incredible support in his districts while serving as a state representative- and later as a state senator, proving that when his constituents have experienced his representation, he's gain support from both parties. McAffrey feels very strongly that Oklahomans need him in Washington to help mend our political divide and to focus on issues most important to District 5.
McAffrey is determined to represent Oklahomans in his district in the way he knows they deserve, in the way that they'll be heard and in the way that their voices actually make a difference on a federal level through his voting and teamwork. Please join our efforts, support and VOTE!
