Freshman Oklahoma Rep. Jim Bridenstine caught our attention the other day when he voiced his concerns over Republicans caving on another tax increase in the sequestration battle. Well he caught the attention of the Great One as well and was on for an interview last night.
Turns out Bridenstine is very articulate and very conservative. He’s also a Navy pilot who’s flown combat in Iraq and Afghanistan and until the day he was sworn in he was flying counter-drug missions in central and South America.
He explains to Levin why he ran in the first place and Levin was so impressed that he’s already recommending he run for the Senate when Coburn retires in 2016.
