Oklahoma Speaker T.W. Shannon has debuted two new ads in the last week before the Senate GOP primary: a positive spot touting his credentials, plus an ad featuring former Rep. J.C. Watts, R-Okla.
Shannon and Rep. James Lankford, R-Okla., are locked a tight GOP primary on June 24 that will likely head to an August runoff if no candidate gets more than 50 percent of the vote. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., is stepping down at the end of this Congress, creating this contentious special election for his seat.
In Shannons positive spot, provided to CQ Roll Call, Shannon speaks directly to the camera.
America is at a crossroads, he says, standing near Route 66.
Friends, we must chart a new path, he goes on. Its time to stand up to Barack Obama and say no to more debt and demand a balanced budget. Thats exactly what Ill do as your next Senator.
The 30-second ad is backed by 1,000 points the metric for how many times an ad plays on the air and will run statewide through primary day, according to Shannons campaign.
The second ad pushes back on a negative spot that Foundation for Economic Prosperity Inc., a super PAC backing Lankford, is running. The ad claims Shannon voted in the Oklahoma House of Representatives for higher debt and a Medicaid expansion for a special interest that employed him, according to NewsOK.
Dont believe the false attacks against T.W. Shannon. I know T.W., says Watts, who previously endorsed Shannon, speaking directly to the camera.

Mark Levin, Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin have all endorsed TW Shannon.
Langford is endorsed by Mike Huckabee.
I think that says it all.
Haven’t considered this race yet ...
Praying for TW Shannon to take this one with a solid percentage of the vote. We need our resources elsewhere. Very glad that Palin, Levin, etc. have endorsed him. Maybe Laura Ingraham will feature him on her program, as well.
