U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Rice D – Oklahoma will be on Think Youth today. In the evenly-divided Oklahoma State Senate, Sen. Rice has proclaimed himself as a consensus-builder and a strong advocate for children and families.
Andrew Rice joins the Think Youth clan to discuss his candidacy and all aspects of Oklahoma State Senate. Catch this fascinating show today at 7pm ET on Think Youth.
This passage from Senator Rice’s website biography details his history and approach to politics:
When Oklahoma voters elected 24 Democrats and 24 Republicans to fill the State Senate, many feared that it would lead to gridlock at the State Capitol. However, Senator Rice has worked closely with Republicans in both the House and Senate to get results for Oklahoma.
Born and raised in Oklahoma City, Rice saw his life take a dramatic turn on September 11, 2001, when his older brother, David, was killed in the terrorist attack on New York?s World Trade Center…As a result of his family?s tragic loss, Andrew Rice re-dedicated his life to social justice work and common-sense public policy.
