TULSA, OK (October 21, 2014) — U.S. Rep. James Lankford today endorsed fellow Republican Joy Hofmeister in her bid to become Oklahoma’s next State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

“Joy Hofmeister is a mom, a strong conservative, and an experienced educator with a passion for students, teachers and families. I trust her to work collaboratively to promote higher standards, to increase graduation rates and have a positive impact on the schools in our state,” Lankford said.

“I am honored to endorse Joy for State Superintendent, and I look forward to working with her for the future of Oklahoma,” Lankford said.

Hofmeister said she was pleased to have Lankford’s support.
