Seating will be first come, first served at the Yukon Police Department, 100 S. Ranchwood Boulevard.

“I am running for US Senate because I believe that every Oklahoman deserves to have a choice in who leads them,” Billings said. “The people of Oklahoma deserve to have a leader in Washington who has actually experienced the same troubles that they have and is willing to fight to give them the same opportunities to succeed that every American deserves.”

Born and raised in Edmond, Billings graduated from Edmond Santa Fe High School in 2008 and earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Oklahoman in 2013 and his Ph.D. in political science from the University of Oklahoma in 2019. While attending OU, billings taught freshman-level political science courses for five years.

Billings resides in Edmond and currently teaches political science. He and his wife, Mary Deter, have two boys, Ezra, age six, and Noah, age three.

“While Jim Inhofe has spent the last thirty years in Congress losing touch with the issues that matter most to Oklahomans, I have been here living them,” Billings said. “I have been getting an education, raising a family, working to make ends meet.

“It is time that the people of Oklahoma know that they have a say in who leads our state and our nation,” he said. “But unless every Oklahoman exercises their right to vote none of the problems that we are concerned about will ever be addressed. Our leaders won’t fight for us because they don’t think they have to.”
