ABOUT THE ISSUES
Civil Asset Forfeiture:
Civil forfeiture laws allow the government to take cash, cars, homes and other property suspected of being involved in criminal activity. Unlike criminal forfeiture, with civil forfeiture, the property owner doesn’t have to be charged with, let alone convicted of, a crime to permanently lose his property.

He attended Eastern Avenue Christian Academy in Moore, Kingsgate Elementary in South Oklahoma City, Christian Heritage Academy through his junior year of high school, and graduated from Westmoore High School in 1992.

While attending the University of Oklahoma, Kyle accepted an internship in Washington, D.C. with congressman Ernest Istook. Following the internship, Kyle joined the congressman’s staff, working his way up from staff assistant to legislative assistant—advising the congressman on legislative matters important to Oklahomans especially agriculture, energy and natural resources.
Through Kyle’s efforts, congressman Istook was able to secure the necessary resources to help the revitalization and restoration of the North Canadian, now Oklahoma, River. The economic development that stemmed from this project has created thousands of jobs and grown Oklahoma City’s economy by millions of dollars.
After returning home to start a family, Kyle immediately became civically involved.

Standing up for our Values
Kyle Loveless was raised in Oklahoma and understands our conservative principles. As a senator, he fights to preserve our way of life and will always stand up for our faith, family and freedom.
Through his years of advocating for Oklahomans, Kyle understands the free-market principles that make our state and country great.
Kyle is proud of his Christian values and will always do what is right to ensure those views are represented in Government.
The Economy, Jobs and Spending
As the son of small-business owners, Kyle has seen the damaging effects of government overreach. Kyle will always fight to lower taxes, reduce spending and eliminate job killing regulations that halt our economy.
Kyle works to provide the opportunity and economic environment for good paying jobs for all Oklahomans. He does this by keeping the government out of business’ way so our economy can thrive.
A strong educational system creates strong communities, but Washington is not the answer. That’s why Kyle has always opposed Common Core in favor of local control of education.
Kyle is a staunch advocate of school choice. When parents and communities come together to support their students, it is the young people who prosper.
Kyle stands up for our local schools and supports more local control within the school district, because they know the educational needs of students better than distant bureaucrats.
Innovative programs that teach science, technology, mathematics, and engineering will provide our young people with the skills needed to succeed in society. Kyle is fighting to bring STEM programs to every Oklahoma school so every child has the opportunity to succeed.
Second Amendment Rights
Kyle understands that gun ownership is a fundamental right in the United States and will always fight against harsh gun control laws. Oklahoma gun owners have no better friend than Senator Kyle Loveless.
Protecting the Unborn
The right to life is guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution and Kyle firmly believes the right to life should extend to the unborn. Kyle is adamantly pro-life and this belief stems from his Christian conservative values.

State law prohibits acceptance of corporate contributions. State ethics laws prohibit any person or family from contributing more than $5,000 to any candidate during a campaign. Ethics rules define a family as “an individual, his or her spouse, if any, and all children under the age of 18 years residing in the same household.” Contributions are not tax detuctible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.
Our conservative values are worth fighting for… but I can’t do it without your help. Volunteers like you are what make campaigns successful. Will you help knock doors, make phone calls, or participate in parades and events? Even a few hours make an incredible difference.
