Our District’s rural communities are the backbone of Oklahoma’s economy. The more than 28,000 family farms that call the Third District home sold nearly $4.2 billion worth of products into the global marketplace. As a fifth-generation Oklahoman living on the family farm as a cattle rancher and wheat farmer, Frank knows just how important it is to support the communities that clothe and feed billions around the world. Often times Washington forgets about rural America. Frank stands up for rural Oklahoma- providing for Oklahoma’s farmers, pushing for an increase in rural broadband, fighting to save rural hospitals, and encourages more fair and free trade between our trading partners. Agriculture is a way of life in Western Oklahoma and Frank is a strong voice for all of the District’s rural communities.
