Many political advisors have never run for, muchless served in, political office. As a former state Speaker of the House, Lance's strategic advice is guided by his unique experience.
Lance defeated a longtime incumbent to gain office and served in the minority party, majority party and as the leader of a legislative body.
Since leaving office, he has continued to lead highly succesful state wide and local candidate and issue campaigns.
Lance is a graduate of Vanderbilt Law School and Oklahoma State University, where he had a cumulative 4.0 G.P.A, earning a degree in Economics and Political Science.
After law school he worked as a corporate lawyer with the largest Texas and Oklahoma based law firms (Akin, Gump in Dallas and Crowe & Dunlevy in Oklahoma), where he focused on antitrust and competitive tort litigation.
Lance ran for the Oklahoma state House in 2000 and defeated a 12-year Democrat incumbent (No incumbent with more than 8 years experience has been beaten since). In 2004, he became the leader of the House GOP political team and led the effort that won the first GOP majority in the Oklahoma House in over 80 years.
Lance oversaw all aspects of the House GOP political operation, including fundraising, message development, candidate recruitment, online initiatives, polling and survey research.
Over the 2004-2008 election cycles, during which time Lance ascended to the Speakership, Oklahoma House Republicans net gained more seats than any other GOP caucus in the country. At 35 years of age, Cargill was the youngest sitting Speaker in the country.
Lance also led a highly successful statewide issues initiative, 100 Ideas for Oklahoma's Second Century, and authored a book with policy ideas that grew from the program (available in .pdf form at www.100ideasok.us).
