NEW: Oklahoma GOP members say resolution condemning James Lankford is 'illegitimate,' weren't notified of meeting

"The meeting held by certain Republicans on January 27th was an illegitimate meeting."


On Saturday the Oklahoma GOP (OKGOP) met and passed a resolution to condemn Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) of working on an "open border deal" with Senate Democrats. Now the OKGOP is reversing course on the measure because members have taken issue with the meeting.  

In a post to X, a reporter posted a statement on Monday from the OKGOP, which stated the meeting for the resolution was "illegitimate." 

"The meeting held by certain Republicans on January 27th was an illegitimate meeting. Proper notice was not provided to all members of the State Committee meeting," the OKGOP stated. "None of the actions done at the meeting are the official position of the OKGOP and the media is advised to refrain from reporting or suggesting this was an official action of the ‘OKGOP’ or ‘Oklahoma Republican Party’ regarding the motions, resolutions, or procedures done at this illegitimate meeting." 

Members of the party who objected included Chairwoman of Oklahoma Young Republicans Taylor Broyles and a few others, according to Koco News. 

In the previous statement on Saturday, the resolution, posted to X by Oklahoma State Sen. Dusty Deevers, stated, "Senator James Lankford was recently working with Democrat Senator Charles Schumer on an open border deal to allow 5,000 illegal immigrants a day to enter and work in the United States." 

The previous condemning statement continued, “Until Senator Lankford ceases from these actions, the Oklahoma Republican Party will cease all support for him.”
