Nomination Of Joseph William Westphal To Be Ambassador Extraordinary And Plenipotentiary Of The United States Of America To The Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia March 26, 2014
James Inhofe, R-OK
"Madam President, I ask my colleagues to recognize they have an opportunity now to support someone who is most deserving for the position of Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. His name is Dr. Joseph William Westphal. While he is not an Oklahoma man, in his heart I think he is. He spent most of his time or much of his time in Oklahoma. He is a good personal friend of mine. He actually attended and graduated from the University of Oklahoma. Then he came back and was head of the political science department at Oklahoma State University—kind of an unusual combination."

In my State of Oklahoma, 17,000 families and 28,000 children benefit directly from these funds."
