Broken Arrow Republican State Senator Nathan Dahm will challenge current Oklahoma Republican U.S. Senator James Lankford in the upcoming 2022 U.S. Senate Republican primary.
Dahm, who is term-limited from seeking another four years in the state legislature, launched his website Tuesday morning, and he is expected to hold his first campaign event where he will officially announce his candidacy in Broken Arrow Tuesday afternoon.
The themes presented on Dahm’s website as central to his new campaign are a continuation of former President Donald Trump’s themes “Make America Great Again” and “America First.” The site also calls out incumbent James Lankford for dropping his challenge to the certification of the 2020 election results in Congress on January 6th.
Lankford initially opposed the certification of the results from certain states when Congress was tallying the Electoral College vote, but after rioters stormed and damaged the U.S. Capitol building in an attempt to delay the certification, Lankford dropped his opposition saying the stances he and other Republican senators were taking in their opposition had been tainted by the events of the day.
Dahm’s website accuses Lankford of being a RINO (Republican In Name Only) by not doing more to stand up for Trump by opposing the certification of now President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ win.

He’s an arch conservative. Met him when he was running for state house.
agree that langford is a rino.
suppose the other okies will think two US senators from tulsa will overload the boat toward NE oklahoma?
Been waiting for a challenger to vote for. Thanks 👍🏻
I’ll take arch-Conservative over RINO any day.
Is anyone going to challenge that moron Markwayne Mullin?
It was always a bad idea to send a preacher to be a senator. No offense, but in general, preachers need to stay with the wagons along with the women and children and let the men fight the Indians.
You need parsons, but you don’t put them in charge. Like women, they aren’t wired right for it.
Lankford is a tool, and nobody will miss him. Inhofe could keel over or land on a interstate highway any moment.
Not pretty enough-those things count. Arch conservatives are not necessary. To get the nomination he should lighten up.
Yep he’s making his move it will be fun to watch.
Hope he succeeds, but the OK Republican establishment will do everything it can to shore up Lankford.
I miss Okie land as well as Texas.
The head of Republican Party in OK wants lankford out.
If I were for Dahm...
I’m surprised, but happy to hear it.
