Greg Childers is a Republican politician from Oklahoma who served as a member of the Oklahoma Senate from 2011 to 2012.

Political career[edit]

Greg Childers began his political career being elected by Oklahoma's Senate District 43 to the Oklahoma Senate on October 11, 2011.[1] He won the seat in a special election held after his predecessor, Jim Reynolds, resigned after being elected as the Cleveland County Treasurer, beating out Democrat Kennith Meador.[2] Childers holds positions on the Education, Finance, Veterans & Military Affairs, Public Safety and Appropriations Subcommittee on Public Safety and Judiciary Committees.[3] In February he endorsed Newt Gingrich for the 2012 election's Republican presidential candidate.[4]

Childers did not run for re-election in the 2012 election, because his Senate district was redistricted and he no longer lived within its new boundaries.[5]
