Madison Horn, U.S. Senate Nominee and cybersecurity expert from Oklahoma, is running against James Lankford for the U.S. Senate. She has rural roots being from Stilwell, OK, and is a Cherokee citizen. Her global experience in national security, understanding the impact the lack of access has on people's lives and proven leadership - positions her to provide practical solutions for the problems of today and tomorrow. A race on no one's radar, this flyover state is presumed to be in a red stronghold. However, the current political climate and issues facing Oklahomans are driving a landscape for Democratic candidates like Madison Horn to create an upset, which her campaign, Oklahomans for Madison, says is evident in recent polling done on other statewide races, with +4 and -1 margins showing the uncertainty building in Oklahoma.
The biggest issue creating swings in states like Oklahoma, like seen in Kansas, is the restriction of women's health which Madison's opponent is leading and doubling down with recent statements.
The following is an open letter from Madison Horn regarding a recent statement by her opponent, Senator Lankford.
"Senator Lankford is drawing a connection to the passing of a deeply flawed, extreme piece of legislation restricting women's rights with rain falling as a sign of God's blessing.
This bill, lacking both empathy and compassion, has brought suffering to thousands of women in our state, as similar bills have across our nation. The rain he is referring to was responsible for hundreds of farmers losing crops and income. This was no act of God, but a poor argument from a failing Senator whose only hope is to misuse religion for his own personal gain. Additionally, it misrepresents countless people of faith who desire a reasonable, caring approach to protecting reproductive rights.
85% of Americans support access to reproductive health services (Gallup 2022) - access that the Oklahoma bill denies. The growing trend of James Lankford abusing his own interpretation of faith to gain the trust of his constituents goes hand-in-hand with the extreme government overreach that he is forcing on others. He is not the first elected official throughout history to abuse religious views in this way, but it is another shameful example of a Senator who has become a mouthpiece for divisive factions and political pandering.
The fact is, women are now suffering, Oklahoma is still in a drought, and elected officials like James Lankford must be voted out this November."

Tomb of Marquis of Haihun
One of China's top 10 archaeological discoveries in 2015, the tomb has yielded the largest number of relics, boasting of the most variety and the finest craftsmanship in Jiangxi.
Dethroned after 27 days, the shortest reign among Western Han emperors, Liu He (92-59 B.C.), master of the Haihunhou Tomb, was banished as a commoner and later allowed to reside near a lake and given the title of the Marquis of Haihun. He died in his early 30s, reports People's Daily Online. Its reporting team visited the site and interviewed a leading researcher.
Such vicissitudes might have deprived his life of imperial glory, but the relics unearthed from his tomb tell a different story, revealing a dynasty's grandeur.
The tomb near Nanchang, capital of east China's Jiangxi Province, turns out to be the best-preserved Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - 24 AD) cemetery ever found, with the most integrated structure, distinct layout, and complete sacrificial system.
One of China's top 10 archaeological discoveries in 2015, the tomb yielded the largest number of relics, boasting of the most variety and the finest craftsmanship in Jiangxi.
Among the relics, including gold, bronze, and jade artifacts, archaeologists discovered a broken lacquer "screen" in the main chamber of the tomb and restored two portraits, one of which is believed to be the earliest portrait of Confucius ever found in China.
Also unearthed were more than 5,000 pieces of bamboo slips of Confucian classics, indicating the prevalence of Confucius' teachings among the royals more than 2,000 years ago. The Qi version of The Analects of Confucius, which had been lost for about 1,800 years, was found in the unearthed bamboo slips, which have been subject to infrared scanning and are ready for further study.
Liu was the grandson of Emperor Wu, whose reign ushered in a prosperous period of the Han Dynasty that is believed on par with the reign of the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty.
"To know Emperor Qin and his dynasty through archaeological artifacts, one can turn to Terra-cotta Warriors. Nevertheless, before the Haihunhou tomb, there were not many artifacts for an in-depth study of Emperor Wu," Yang Jun, a researcher at the Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology and a leading archaeologist, told People's Daily Online.
In Yang's view, the Haihunhou tomb shed light on the mightiness of the Han Dynasty as all treasures bearing the mark of the marquis had been buried with him.
The 4 million unearthed Wuzhu bronze coins, weighing more than 10 tonnes, attested to the dynasty's opulence. This finding is the first hard evidence of the Chinese using a string of 1,000 coins as a monetary unit, pushing the original date back 600 years.
