(WASHINGTON, D.C.) U.S. Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) released the following statement today regarding the nomination of Arvo Mikkanen to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma.
“I have serious concerns about the White House’s nomination of Arvo Mikkanen to a seat on the District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma. I believe he is unacceptable for the position and another example of how politics in Washington neglect to take into account what is best for the people of Oklahoma. I am also deeply disappointed in the White House’s lack of consultation with me on this nomination. I hope we can work together in the future to find a nominee for this seat whom I can support” said Dr. Coburn.
