What Supporters Are Saying about Will Rogers...
“Will’s idea basically was a simple one: Cooperation, not division and he was the perfect representation for this idea.”
Hollywood Actor; two consecutive Primetime Emmy Award Winner
“Will Rogers epitomized America: humble, decent, a man of goodness and good will. Creative, spirited, a trendsetter and a man of enduring talent. He was the best of society and held our hands in the worst and most desperate of times.”
Honorable Frank Keating
25th governor of Oklahoma from 1995 to 2003
“More than ever, our country needs the common sense and ability to laugh at itself that Will Rogers provided. His humility and humor would be so welcome in today's world.”
The longest-serving President Pro Tempore of the Oklahoma Senate
