By now you’ve probably seen how Governor Kevin Stitt responded to a PETA billboard calling him a ‘meathead.’
The Governor decided to have a cookout right underneath it.
It may look like a joke, but there’s much more to the story and what lead up to it.
It’s been a back-and-forth deal between Stitt and the Governor of Colorado.
When a 100-year-old livestock show, National Western, couldn’t go on as planned in Denver because of the state’s COVID-19 restrictions, people involved with the industry decided to start a new show called Cattleman’s Congress in OKC.
“Because of the way they handled their economy, we actually reached out and recruited them to Oklahoma and now they’re full-time in Oklahoma,” Stitt said, “It’s going to be huge I mean we just saw a 50 million dollar impact by having that show here.”
The Soules family lives outside of Skiatook and raises beef and shows cattle.
Steve Soules attended Cattlemen’s Congress in January and noticed many perks of it being in Oklahoma.
