Senator Dan Newberry was born on November 22, 1975. He is third generation Tulsan and is an active member of Victory Christian Center. He earned a diploma of Charismatic Ministry at Oral Roberts University, a Liberal Arts B.S. from Oral Roberts with a focus on Leadership and Organizational Management and has been a business professional in the mortgage banking industry for sixteen years and is now the Vice President of Real Estate Operations at TTCU the Credit Union.

Senator Newberry was elected to the State Senate in November 2008. He and his wife, Laura, have four children: Claire, Paige, Eva and Alex. He currently serves in the Republican Leadership as Chairman of the Business and Commerce Committee. He also serves as a ranking member of three additional standing committees: Appropriations, Appropriations Subcommittee on Select Agencies, Pensions, and Transportation and served as a Senate Majority Whip.
Senator Newberry authored a constitutional amendment during his first session fighting Patient Protection Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. He has received multiple awards from Americans United for Life and Oklahomans for Life for authoring legislation which protects the sanctity of human life at all stages. As a strong supporter of the military, he established the Gold Star Medal of Honor, which is given to the spouse or family members of an American soldier killed in action since 9/11.
Senator Newberry is the founder of the Paul Revere Reading Society, created to motivate elementary students to read. The Oklahoma Farm Bureau named him a member of the prestigious “100 Percent Club,” and the Oklahoma State Chamber honored him with the Guardian of Free Enterprise award for championing the economic development and growth of business in our state.
As a third generation Tulsan it is an honor serving you every day as an Oklahoma State Senator. I understand the conservative values we share as Oklahomans. As a small business owner, I am a firm believer in job creating measures based on free market principles. It is a pleasure making our community and state a better place, and I will always stand up for our families and our way of life.
