We recently chided a liberal trial lawyer group for its low ranking of a legislator despite his record on health care. A conservative group deserves the same scorn for its targeting of state Rep. Doug Cox, R-Grove, for being too liberal. The group says Cox has strayed from conservative principles. The trial lawyers targeted state Rep. Kris Steele, R-Shawnee, for voting the “wrong” way on bills the lawyers thought important. Constituents in the district served by Cox are being asked to vote his Democratic challenger. Steele and Cox, a physician, are among the finest members of the Legislature. Both have dedicated their time to improving the health care of all Oklahomans. Few may agree with every vote made by Cox and Steele, but their overall record makes both worthy of another term. Neither deserved the criticism.
