Early life, education and career

Bridenstine was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and is a Jenks High School graduate, a graduate of Rice University with three majors, and has an MBA from Cornell University. He is a former executive director of the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium and is a pilot in the U.S. Navy Reserve where he flies the E-2C Hawkeye in Central and South America in support of the War on Drugs.

2012 election

Bridenstine defeated six-term incumbent congressman John Sullivan in the Republican primary election on June 26, 2012; taking 54 percent of the vote to Sullivan's 46 percent.

Bridenstine faces Democrat John Olson and independent Craig Allen in the primary. However, the 1st is so heavily Republican that Bridenstine will be overwhelmingly favored in November. The district has a Cook Partisan Voting Index of R+16, and John McCain carried the 1st with over 64 percent of the vote in 2008.
