DUNCAN — Help is on the way is what U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe told the crowd during his keynote speaking address at the 9th annual Stephens County GOP Fish Fry Saturday.

A Tulsa resident, Inhofe piloted himself in his plane to the Halliburton Field Airport for the event, which took place at the Stephens County Fair & Expo Center. Inhofe’s focus is on what he calls President Obama’s liberal agendas.

“Never in the history of America have we had anyone as liberal as this,” Inhofe said. “Just try to survive the next three years.”

Inhofe said he felt the fish fry is a good opportunity to let people know there are legislators on their side. Networking is another good aspect of the event, he said, not only for the numerous elected officials who were present but for those they represent.

“Networking is a good word for it because it’s important that everyone has communication from the outside,” he said. “Everyone feels like a target.”

Speaking to the audience, Inhofe told them of the things he is working on to keep under control at the Capitol. From keeping the Obama administration from gaining control of gun and ammunition legislation to keeping taxes from going up, Inhofe said he’s working on it.
