Lankford’s campaign said it brought in more than $660,000, with contributions from all 77 Oklahoma counties, during the three-month period ending June 30.

U.S. Sen. James Lankford touted his second-quarter campaign haul Thursday while facing a possible censure vote by the Oklahoma Republican Party this weekend.

Lankford’s campaign said it brought in more than $660,000, with contributions from all 77 Oklahoma counties, during the three-month period ending June 30.

The campaign reported having more than $1.6 million in cash on hand.

Thursday was the deadline for members of Congress and candidates for those positions to file second-quarter campaign finance reports with the Federal Election Commission, but Lankford is the only member of Oklahoma’s delegation with a declared opponent for 2022.

That opponent, Tulsa-area pastor Jackson Lahmeyer, has aggressively attacked Lankford for voting to accept the electoral college results from the 2020 presidential election.

Doing so caused Lankford to be censured by several county Republican parties, and a possible state party vote is on the agenda for a Saturday state committee meeting in Edmond.

Lahmeyer’s FEC reports were not available on the Federal Election Commission’s website Thursday evening.

First District Congressman Kevin Hern reported contributions of $189,048.12 for the quarter with $431,830.95 in cash.

Hern’s 2018 campaign still owes a little over $1 million, mostly to Hern, according to Thursday’s report.

Second District Congressman Markwayne Mullin’s report showed contributions of $71,521 and cash on hand of $674,204.37.

Third District Congressman Frank Lucas’ quarterly report showed contributions of $87,644.22 and cash of $244,400.98.

Fifth District Congresswoman Stephanie Bice reported contributions of $247,426.40 with $594,211.41 in cash.

Fourth District Congressman Tom Cole’s report was not available Thursday evening.

Oklahoma’s other U.S. senator, Jim Inhofe, says he will not run for reelection when his current term ends in 2026.

All members of Oklahoma’s congressional delegation are Republicans.
