After last month endorsing Marco Rubio, Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma endorsed Carly Fiorina to take down Barbara Boxer. Inhofe and Boxer both serve on the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, which Boxer chairs. Inhofe is the ranking member on that committee. She succeeded Inhofe as Chairperson of the committee when the Democrats took control of the Senate in 2007. They don’t appear to be the best of friends. Inhofe is one of the most conservative Senators, with a grade of 96/100, just behind Jim DeMint, and Jon Kyl, who also is supporting Fiorina. He ties with Mike Enzi, and Tom Coburn, who supports Fiorina, and is also from Oklahoma. Inhofe was also named “Outstanding Conservative Senator” recently.
“Carly Fiorina is a true fiscal conservative who has made controlling our federal deficit one of her top priorities. Her common-sense approach and sharp business skills make her exactly the kind of leader we need in the U.S. Senate to help address our ballooning deficit and get our nation’s economy back on track.”
