On his first day on the job, Tulsa’s new Congressman has split with the rest of the Oklahoma House delegation.

Jim Bridenstine was one of only nine republicans, nationally, who voted against John Boehner for another term as speaker of the house. The rest of the Oklahoma delegation voted for Boehner, including new 2nd District Congressman Markwayne Mullin.

Bridenstine voted for Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor.
