TULSA, Okla. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine of Tulsa is hosting an economic forum in his district with former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore.
The discussion of the state of the U.S. economy will be held Monday at Ti Amo, an Italian restaurant in downtown Tulsa.
A tea party favorite, Bridenstine is a first-term Republican congressman who knocked off established GOP incumbent and former U.S. Rep. John Sullivan in 2012 in Tulsa's 1st District.
Gilmore is a Republican who served as Virginia's 68th governor from 1998 and 2002 and is now president of the Free Congress Foundation, a conservative Washington, D.C.-based think-tank.
The event is open to the public, but an RSVP is required by going to the congressman's website at bridenstine.house.gov.
