Attorney General Pruitt Statement on Senator Coburn Announcement
“Dr. Coburn is an example of what is right in Washington when there are so many examples of what is wrong. His unrelenting dedication to uncovering wasteful spending has helped bring a renewed focus on the importance of the federal government living within its means. He is a genuine leader who is never afraid to tell you exactly where he stands. And unlike most in our nation’s capitol, Dr. Coburn is driven not by partisan politics or a desire to get re-elected, but rather by his commitment to secure a brighter future for the next generation of Americans. That kind of principled leadership is in short supply in Washington these days and will be sorely missed. My prayers are with him and his family as he moves forward with the next chapter of his life."
