Tulsa, Okla. - There aren't many guarantees in the upcoming Presidential election.
But with it being a virtual certainty that Mitt Romney will win Oklahoma, State Republican Party Chairman Matt Pinnell says it makes sense to send Oklahoma volunteers to so-called battleground swing states like Ohio and Colorado, where the outcome is more in doubt and the number of electoral votes will play a much greater role in the election.
"While Oklahoma is a 'flyover state' we can still have a major impact in this Presidential election with the amount of volunteers that we're able to send to a targeted state," Pinnell said.
He said local volunteers have been asking for ways to help the national campaign that will be most effective.
Pinnell said volunteers went in 2008 to Colorado, which went for Obama, but he said it's believed the race is much closer this year.
