Gov. Kevin Stitt's inaugural committee spent more than $2.4 million on January inauguration events to kick off his first term in office.
The inaugural committee spent more on his inauguration events — a series of festivities across the state culminating in his inauguration at the state Capitol — than former Gov. Mary Fallin spent on both of her inaugurations combined.
The committee also spent every penny of the $2,471,900 raised from donated funds and ticket sales, leaving no funds left in his inaugural account. Fallin spent $2.36 million combined for her two inauguration celebrations.
Many of the high-dollar contributions to Stitt’s inaugural campaign came from Oklahoma tribes, major local businesses and oil companies. Stitt’s inauguration was funded entirely by private contributions.
