Oklahoma’s newly elected Republican governor is visiting President Donald Trump at the White House, with a dozen other governors-elect from both parties.

Like the president, Oklahoma Governor-elect Kevin Stitt leveraged his status as a businessman outsider during his race for governor. Stitt enjoyed PresidentTrump’s endorsement once he secured the GOP nomination.

In a statement, Stitt says he told the president how his tax cuts and deregulation agenda is helping Oklahoma’s economy. Stitt says he also met with Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and discussed ways to better utilize the Port of Catoosa in northeastern Oklahoma.

Kansas Governor-elect Laura Kelly chose not to travel to Washington.
